How to create a stream
Before live streaming via the Livepeer API, you will need to create a Livepeer account and be able to create a RTMP stream. You do not need to create an API key.
- Open your Livepeer account and navigate to the streams list page, https://livepeer.com/app/user.
- Click the button to create a new stream.
- On the create a new stream page, input a stream name.
- Your stream name needs to be unique and include URL compatible characters only.
- When you are ready, save your stream and go on to the next step.
- After saving your stream, you will be redirected to the stream page.
