    This document describes how to quickly run the TRTC-API-Example for iOS and macOS.

    Environment Requirements

    Xcode 11.0 or above
    A valid developer signature for your project
    Qt Creator 4.13.3 (macOS) or above


    You have signed up for a Tencent Cloud account.



    Step 1. Create an application

    1. Log in to the TRTC console and select Development Assistance > Demo Quick Run.
    2. Select New and enter an application name such as TestTRTC. If you have already created an application, select Existing.
    3. Add or edit tags according to your actual business needs and click Create.
    An application name can contain up to 15 characters. Only digits, letters, Chinese characters, and underscores are allowed.
    Tags are used to identify and organize your Tencent Cloud resources. For example, an enterprise may have multiple business units, each of which has one or more TRTC applications. In this case, the enterprise can tag TRTC applications to mark out the unit information. Tags are optional and can be added or edited according to your actual business needs.

    Step 2. Download the SDK and TRTC-API-Example source code

    1. Download the SDK and TRTC-API-Example source code.
    2. Click Next.

    Step 3. Configure TRTC-API-Example project files

    1. In the Modify Configuration step, select the development platform in line with the source package downloaded.
    2. Find and open LiteAVSDK_TRTC_iOS_version number/TRTC-API-Example/Debug/GenerateTestUserSig.h.
    3. Set parameters in GenerateTestUserSig.h:
    SDKAPPID: `0` by default. Set it to the actual `SDKAppID`.
    SECRETKEY: left empty by default. Set it to the actual key.
    4. Click Next to complete the creation.
    5. After compilation, click Return to Overview Page.
    The method for generating UserSig described in this document involves configuring SECRETKEY in client code. In this method, SECRETKEY may be easily decompiled and reversed, and if your key is disclosed, attackers can steal your Tencent Cloud traffic. Therefore, this method is suitable only for the local execution and debugging of TRTC-API-Example.
    The correct UserSig distribution method is to integrate the calculation code of UserSig into your server and provide an application-oriented API. When UserSig is needed, your application can send a request to the business server for a dynamic UserSig. For more information, please see How do I calculate UserSig on the server?.

    Step 4. Compile and run

    Open the TRTC-API-Example-OC.xcworkspace project in the source code directory with Xcode (11.0 or above) and compile and run the TRTC-API-Example project.


    1. Only public and private keys can be obtained when I try to view the key. How do I get a key?

    TRTC SDK 6.6 (August 2019) and later versions use the new signature algorithm HMAC-SHA256. If your application was created before August 2019, you need to upgrade the signature algorithm to get a new key. Without upgrading, you can continue to use the old algorithm ECDSA-SHA256. After upgrading, you can switch between the new and old algorithms as needed.
    1. Log in to the TRTC console.
    2. Click Application Management in the left navigation pane, find your application, and click Application Info.
    3. Select the Quick Start tab and click Upgrade, asymmetric encryption, or HMAC-SHA256 in Step 2: obtain the secret key to issue UserSig.
    Switch to the old algorithm ECDSA-SHA256:
    Switch to the new algorithm HMAC-SHA256:

    2. The demo is running on two mobile phones, but why can't they display the images of each other?

    Make sure that the two mobile phones use different UserIDs. With TRTC, you cannot use the same UserID on two devices simultaneously unless the SDKAppIDs are different.

    3. What are firewall restrictions does the SDK face?

    The SDK uses the UDP protocol for audio/video transmission and therefore cannot be used in office networks that block UDP. If you encounter such a problem, please see How to Deal with Firewall Restrictions to troubleshoot the issue.
