Twilio Video Processors

Twilio Video Processors is a collection of video processing tools that can be used with the Twilio Video JavaScript SDK to apply transformations and filters, such as background blurring and virtual backgrounds, to a VideoTrack. You can also use the tools to create your own transformations or filters.


Video Processors Live Demo

See a live demo with blurred backgrounds and virtual backgrounds using the Video Processors tools here.

Run the demo application

View the Video Processors demo application and run the example application locally.

Add the SDK

You can install Video Processors using Node Package Manager (npm):

npm install @twilio/video-processors --save

Using this method, you can import twilio-video-processors like so:

import * as VideoProcessors from '@twilio/video-processors';

Using the <script> tag

After installing with npm, you can also copy twilio-video-processors.js from the dist/build folder and include it directly in your web app using a <script> tag:

<script src="https://my-server-path/twilio-video-processors.js"></script>

Using this method, twilio-video-processors.js will set a browser global:

const VideoProcessors = Twilio.VideoProcessors;

Supported browsers

These processors are only supported on chromium-based desktop browsers at this moment and will not work on other browsers.
