Migration from @arcware/webrtc-plugin


The @arcware-cloud/pixelstreaming-websdk package is an advanced, feature-rich library for integrating Unreal Engine's Pixel Streaming technology into web applications. It offers a more streamlined and flexible approach compared to the older @arcware/webrtc-plugin package.

Key Differences

  1. Package Scope and Features:

    • @arcware/webrtc-plugin primarily focuses on establishing WebRTC connections.

    • @arcware-cloud/pixelstreaming-websdk extends functionality to include full Pixel Streaming integration, offering a more comprehensive set of tools for interaction with Unreal Engine applications.

  2. API Design:

    • The new package offers a more modern, modular API design, making it easier to integrate and scale with web applications.

  3. Performance and Optimization:

    • Enhanced performance optimizations are present in the new package, ensuring smoother streaming and interaction experiences.


Replace the old package with the new one in your project:

npm uninstall @arcware/webrtc-plugin
npm install @arcware-cloud/pixelstreaming-websdk

Basic Usage Changes


  • Old package:

    import { WebRTC } from '@arcware/webrtc-plugin';
    const webrtc = new WebRTC(config);
  • New package:

    import { ArcwareInit } from '@arcware-cloud/pixelstreaming-websdk';
    const { Application } = ArcwareInit(config);


  • The configuration object structure may have changed. Review the new package's documentation for the updated configuration format.


Event Handling:

  • Update event handling according to the new API documentation. The new package likely offers more events and a different way to handle them.
