The RTCRtpReceiveParameters dictionary, based upon the RTCRtpParameters dictionary, is returned by the the RTCRtpReceiver method getParameters(). It describes the parameters being used by the receiver's RTP connection to the remote peer.


This dictionary currently has no properties of its own; it exists for future expansion. It inherits all of the properties of its parent, RTCRtpParameters.


This example obtains the canonical name (CNAME) being used for RTCP on an RTCRtpReceiver.

function getRtcpCNAME(receiver) {
  let parameters = receiver.getParameters();

  return parameters.rtcp.cname;
