Enabling the next-generation Infinity Connect web app

The next-generation Infinity Connect web app is enabled by default for new deployments (since version 18 of Pexip Infinity).

Existing deployments that have been upgraded to v18 or later and that did not have the tech preview of the next-generation web app enabled, will continue to use the legacy version by default. However, you can elect to use the next-generation web app in these deployments.

The next-generation web app requires a WebRTC-compatible browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge, and Safari). RTMP-based browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer) are not supported. These browsers will be redirected to the legacy version of the Infinity Connect web app.

To enable or disable use of the next-generation web app in your deployment, go to Platform configuration > Global settings and in the Connectivity section, select Default to next-generation Web App.

When this option is enabled, WebRTC-compatible browser users who:

  • enter just the IP address or FQDN of a Conferencing Node will view the next-generation version of the web app.
  • append /webapp to the end of the Conferencing Node's address will view the next-generation version of the web app.
  • wish to view the legacy version of the web app, can do so by appending /webapp1 to the end of the Conferencing Node's address.

When this option is disabled, WebRTC-compatible browser users:

  • will view the legacy version of the web app.
  • who append /webapp to the end of the Conferencing Node's address will view the legacy version of the web app.
  • who wish to view the next-generation version web app, can do so by appending /webapp2 to the end of the Conferencing Node's address.

In all cases, RTMP browser users will continue to view the legacy version of the web app.
