What is the maximum number of Participants that can connect simultaneously to a P2P Room?

The documentation seems to indicate that 10 is possible. Is that the case?



  • The Rooms API enables you to have up to 10 participants in a P2P Room. However, each client has to encode and send a separate video stream for each of the other participants. Given that the bandwidth and CPU needs of P2P Rooms scales quadratically with the number of Participants, our recommendation is to use P2P Rooms only when the number of video Participants is 2 and occasionally 3. Having 4 or more video Participants in a P2P Room is possible, but the quality of experience will degrade quite fast as the number of Participants grows and much more when clients with limited resources are used.
