Hi,

I want to get selected candidate to know about connection type. I just need to know is it using turn for relaying data or connected directly.

Just tried something with https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/RTCPeerConnection/onicecandidate but couldn't get selected/running candidate. All suggestions are welcome

Hi!

If I understand you correctly, you can get active ICE from Stats

Thanks Sergey!

If you are pointing to the getStats method of  RTCPeerConnection object, it's returning an object with a property named as "size" and a number as a value. I couldn't figure it out :/. I'm connecting over local candidates for now. Can it be the cause of this situation?

There is a sample for that:
gets you the ip of the active candidate pair using stats.

I'm just wondering, what if both remote and local candidates are "relay" and the relay IPs belong different turn servers? Which one will be used in the end?

both. TURN servers can talk to each other using plain udp and not knowing the other end is using TURN.

Both. Traffic will go like this: 
[WebRTC A] <==> [TURN 1] <==> [TURN 2] <==> [WebRTC B]
