This section of the docs will walk you through how to set up your integration with the Livepeer.com API.
If you are creating a live streaming platform or application, integrating with the Livepeer.com API will best meet your needs.
The only prerequisite for using the plethora of features in the Livepeer.com API is to be able to create a RTMP stream. ffmpeg or OBS are popular options for creating an RTMP stream, but you can also use any RTMP library, for example Streamaxia in iOS.
If you haven’t already, the first thing you’ll need to do is create an account on Livepeer.com.
Then create an API key in the Livepeer.com admin dashboard.
Next, learn about the
relationship between parent-config and child-session
stream objects. Understanding this is a core concept that will make using the Livepeer.com API simple.
