Connection.VideoProvider

public static abstract class Connection.VideoProvider
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.telecom.Connection.VideoProvider


Provides a means of controlling the video session associated with a Connection.

Implementations create a custom subclass of Connection.VideoProvider and the ConnectionService creates an instance sets it on the Connection using Connection.setVideoProvider(VideoProvider). Any connection which supports video should set the Connection.VideoProvider.

The Connection.VideoProvider serves two primary purposes: it provides a means for Telecom and InCallService implementations to issue requests related to the video session; it provides a means for the ConnectionService to report events and information related to the video session to Telecom and the InCallService implementations.

InCallService implementations interact with the Connection.VideoProvider via InCallService.VideoCall.

public void changePeerDimensions (int width, 
                int height)

Used to inform listening InCallService implementations when the dimensions of the peer's video have changed.

This could occur if, for example, the peer rotates their device, changing the aspect ratio of the video, or if the user switches between the back and front cameras.

Received by the InCallService via InCallService.VideoCall.Callback.onPeerDimensionsChanged(int, int).

Parameters
width int: The updated peer video width.

height int: The updated peer video height.

changeVideoQuality

handleCallSessionEvent

added in API level 23
public void handleCallSessionEvent (int event)

Used to inform listening InCallService implementations when the Connection.VideoProvider reports a call session event.

Received by the InCallService via InCallService.VideoCall.Callback.onCallSessionEvent(int).

Parameters
event int: The event. Valid values are: SESSION_EVENT_RX_PAUSE, SESSION_EVENT_RX_RESUME, SESSION_EVENT_TX_START, SESSION_EVENT_TX_STOP, SESSION_EVENT_CAMERA_FAILURE, SESSION_EVENT_CAMERA_READY, SESSION_EVENT_CAMERA_FAILURE.

onRequestCameraCapabilities

added in API level 23
public abstract void onRequestCameraCapabilities ()

Issues a request to the Connection.VideoProvider to retrieve the camera capabilities.

The Connection.VideoProvider should respond by communicating the capabilities of the chosen camera via changeCameraCapabilities(VideoProfile.CameraCapabilities).

Sent from the InCallService via InCallService.VideoCall.requestCameraCapabilities().

onRequestConnectionDataUsage

added in API level 23
public abstract void onRequestConnectionDataUsage ()

Issues a request to the Connection.VideoProvider to retrieve the current data usage for the video component of the current Connection.

The Connection.VideoProvider should respond by communicating current data usage, in bytes, via setCallDataUsage(long).

Sent from the InCallService via InCallService.VideoCall.requestCallDataUsage().

onSendSessionModifyRequest

added in API level 23
public abstract void onSendSessionModifyRequest (VideoProfile fromProfile, 
                VideoProfile toProfile)

Issues a request to modify the properties of the current video session.

Example scenarios include: requesting an audio-only call to be upgraded to a bi-directional video call, turning on or off the user's camera, sending a pause signal when the InCallService is no longer the foreground application.

If the Connection.VideoProvider determines a request to be invalid, it should call receiveSessionModifyResponse(int, VideoProfile, VideoProfile) to report the invalid request back to the InCallService.

Where a request requires confirmation from the user of the peer device, the Connection.VideoProvider must communicate the request to the peer device and handle the user's response. receiveSessionModifyResponse(int, VideoProfile, VideoProfile) is used to inform the InCallService of the result of the request.

Sent from the InCallService via InCallService.VideoCall.sendSessionModifyRequest(VideoProfile).

Parameters
fromProfile VideoProfile: The video profile prior to the request.

toProfile VideoProfile: The video profile with the requested changes made.

onSendSessionModifyResponse

added in API level 23
public abstract void onSendSessionModifyResponse (VideoProfile responseProfile)

Provides a response to a request to change the current video session properties.

For example, if the peer requests and upgrade from an audio-only call to a bi-directional video call, could decline the request and keep the call as audio-only. In such a scenario, the responseProfile would have a video state of VideoProfile.STATE_AUDIO_ONLY. If the user had decided to accept the request, the video state would be VideoProfile.STATE_BIDIRECTIONAL.

Sent from the InCallService via InCallService.VideoCall.sendSessionModifyResponse(VideoProfile) in response to a InCallService.VideoCall.Callback.onSessionModifyRequestReceived(VideoProfile) callback.

Parameters
responseProfile VideoProfile: The response video profile.

onSetCamera

added in API level 23
public abstract void onSetCamera (String cameraId)

Sets the camera to be used for the outgoing video.

The Connection.VideoProvider should respond by communicating the capabilities of the chosen camera via changeCameraCapabilities(VideoProfile.CameraCapabilities).

Parameters
cameraId String: The id of the camera (use ids as reported by CameraManager.getCameraIdList()).

This could be in response to a preview request via onRequestConnectionDataUsage(), or as a periodic update by the Connection.VideoProvider. Where periodic updates of data usage are provided, they should be provided at most for every 1 MB of data transferred and no more than once every 10 sec.

Received by the InCallService via InCallService.VideoCall.Callback.onCallDataUsageChanged(long).

Parameters
dataUsage long: The updated data usage (in bytes). Reported as the cumulative bytes used since the start of the call.
