1. API Description

Domain name for API request: live.tencentcloudapi.com.

This API is used to get the stream status, which may be active, inactive, or disabled.

This API allows you to query the status of a stream in real time. Given external factors such as network jitter, note the following when you determine whether a host is online:

  1. If possible, use your own logic of stream starting/stopping in a room, such as streaming signaling on the client and the online heartbeat of a host, to determine whether the host is online.
  2. If your application does not provide the room management feature, use the following methods to determine whether a host is online:
    2.1 Use the live stream callback.
    2.2 Call DescribeLiveStreamOnlineList on a regular basis (interval > 1 min).
    2.3 Call this API.
    2.4 A host is considered to be online if the result returned by any of the above methods indicates so. If an API call times out or a parsing error occurs, to minimize the impact on your business, CSS will also consider the host online.

A maximum of 300 requests can be initiated per second for this API.

We recommend you to use API Explorer
Try it
API Explorer provides a range of capabilities, including online call, signature authentication, SDK code generation, and API quick search. It enables you to view the request, response, and auto-generated examples.
