Instruction of Running webrtc_unity_plugin on Android Unity
1. On Linux machine, compile target webrtc_unity_plugin.
Checkout WebRTC codebase: fetch --no-hooks webrtc_android
If you already have a checkout for linux, add target_os=”android into .gclient file.
Run gclient sync
Modify files src/build/android/android_only_jni_exports.lst and src/build/android/android_only_explicit_jni_exports.lst to expose all functions. Namely, change "global" section to "*", and remove "local" section. Otherwise, Unity C# code will not be able to access the functions defined in the plugin. If you do this step after you create a build folder, you may have to clean and recreate the build folder.
Run gn args out/Android, and again set target_os=”android in the
Run ninja -C out/Android webrtc_unity_plugin
2. On Linux machine, compile target libwebrtc_unity under webrtc checkout. This is the java code for webrtc to work on Android.
3. Copy libwebrtc_unity.jar and into Unity project folder, under Assets/Plugins/Android folder.
4. Rename to Again, this is hacky, and the purpose is to let the java code in libwebrtc.jar to find their JNI implementation. And simultaneously, in your C# wrapper script for the native plugin, the dll_path should be set to “jingle_peerconnection_so”.
5. In the Unity Main Scenes Start method, write the following code to initialize the Java environment for webrtc (otherwise, webrtc will not be able to access audio device or camera from C++ code):
AndroidJavaClass playerClass = new AndroidJavaClass("com.unity3d.player.UnityPlayer");
AndroidJavaObject activity = playerClass.GetStatic<AndroidJavaObject>("currentActivity");
AndroidJavaClass webrtcClass = new AndroidJavaClass("org.webrtc.PeerConnectionFactory");
if (webrtcClass != null)
webrtcClass.CallStatic("initializeAndroidGlobals", new object[2] { activity, false });
6. Compile the unity project into an APK, and decompile the apk using apktool that you can download from
Run apktool d apkname.apk.
Then copy the AndroidManifest.xml in the decompiled folder to the Assets/Plugins/Android folder, and add two lines:
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
The purpose of using apktool is to get a well-written android manifest xml file. If you know how to write manifest file from scratch, you can skip using apktool.
7. Compile the unity project into an APK again and deploy it to an android device.
