Understand the stream page specifications

Navigate to a stream page by clicking on a stream name on the stream list page, https://livepeer.com/app/user.

The stream name is at the top of the stream page.

These are the other fields on the stream page.

FieldNotes
Stream keyYour stream key is a secret. Protect this key. The stream key is used to authenticate while ingesting RTMP streams.
Ingest and playback URL pairsFor any stream session, you must use the ingest URL and playback URL pair from the same region. Learn how to pick an RTMP ingest and playback URL pair.
RTMP ingest URLThe RTMP ingest point should be close to where the stream is broadcasted. This is an example of how the RTMP ingest URL is formatted:
  • rtmp://{region}-rtmp.livepeer.com/live/{stream-key}
Playback URLThe playback URL is based on the region your stream originates in. Even though the playback URL references the ingest location, playback will work for your viewers everywhere. This is an example of how the playback URL is formatted:
  • https://{region}-cdn.livepeer.com/hls/{playbackId}/index.m3u8
RenditionsThe width (pixels), height (pixels) and frame rate (frames per second) for each transcoded rendition of your source stream are listed.
Created atThis is the local date (MM/DD/YYYY) and time the stream was created.
Last seen atThis is the most recent date and time a video segment for this stream was transcoded.
StatusEither active or idle.
  • active: there is an active stream session
  • idle: there is not an active stream session

Next, learn how to broadcast a stream configured in the Livepeer.com dashboard.
