qiscus_meet

Qiscus Meet is a WebRTC compatible, free and Open Source video conferencing system that provides browsers and mobile applications with Real Time Communications capabilities.

Getting Started

Configuration

IOS

  • Note: Example compilable with XCode 12.2 & Flutter 1.22.4.

Podfile

Ensure in your Podfile you have an entry like below declaring platform of 12.0 or above, ENABLE_BITCODE = NO, and IPHONEOS_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET = 12.0.

platform :ios, '12.0'
...

post_install do |installer|
  installer.pods_project.targets.each do |target|
    flutter_additional_ios_build_settings(target)
  target.build_configurations.each do |config|
  config.build_settings['ENABLE_BITCODE'] = 'NO'
  config.build_settings['IPHONEOS_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET'] = '12.0'
  end
end
end

Info.plist

Add NSCameraUsageDescription and NSMicrophoneUsageDescription to your Info.plist.

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>$(PRODUCT_NAME) MyApp needs access to your camera for meetings.</string>
<key>NSMicrophoneUsageDescription</key>
<string>$(PRODUCT_NAME) MyApp needs access to your microphone for meetings.</string>

Android

Gradle

Set dependencies of build tools gradle to minimum 3.6.3:

dependencies {
    classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:3.6.3' <!-- Upgrade this -->
    classpath "org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:$kotlin_version"
}

Set distribution gradle wrapper to minimum 5.6.4.

distributionBase=GRADLE_USER_HOME
distributionPath=wrapper/dists
zipStoreBase=GRADLE_USER_HOME
zipStorePath=wrapper/dists
distributionUrl=https\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-5.6.4-all.zip <!-- Upgrade this -->

Add Java 1.8 compatibility support to your project by adding the following lines into your build.gradle file:

compileOptions {
    sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
}

AndroidManifest.xml

Qiscus Meet's SDK AndroidManifest.xml will conflict with your project, namely the application:label field. To counter that, go into android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml and add the tools library and tools:replace="android:label" to the application tag.

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    package="yourpackage.com"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"> <!-- Add this -->
    <application
        tools:replace="android:label"
        android:name="your.application.name"
        android:label="My Application"
        android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher">
        ...
    </application>
...
</manifest>

Minimum SDK Version 23

Update your minimum sdk version to 23 in android/app/build.gradle

defaultConfig {
    applicationId "com.qiscus.qiscusmeet"
    minSdkVersion 23 //Required for QiscusMeet
    targetSdkVersion 28
    versionCode flutterVersionCode.toInteger()
    versionName flutterVersionName
}

Proguard

Qiscus SDK enables proguard, but without a proguard-rules.pro file, your release apk build will be missing the Flutter Wrapper as well as react-native code. In your Flutter project's android/app/build.gradle file, add proguard support

buildTypes {
    release {
        // TODO: Add your own signing config for the release build.
        // Signing with the debug keys for now, so `flutter run --release` works.
        signingConfig signingConfigs.debug

        // Add below 3 lines for proguard
        minifyEnabled true
        useProguard true
        proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
    }
}

Then add a file in the same directory called proguard-rules.pro. See the example app's proguard-rules.pro file to know what to paste in.

Note If you do not create the proguard-rules.pro file, then your app will crash when you try to join a meeting or the meeting screen tries to open but closes immediately. You will see one of the below errors in logcat.
