The Streaming APIs enable customer's application to stream the conference to a large number of viewers. Both HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) are supported for live conferences. RTMP is used for streaming through a third-party service such as Youtube and Facebook.
Due to the current system capacity limit, HLS streaming is only available for selected customers.
The concept of Streaming is similar to Recording. The Communications API Mixer Service, using either default or customized layout, can stream to a destination based on the method chosen by the application. The customizable mixer layout app, has the flexibility to implement use case specific layouts. In other words, customer can have different layouts for recording, HLS streaming and RTMP streaming. It is not possible to stream a recorded conference.
For more information regarding the streaming format, refer to the Recording guide.
