StreamLive Outputting to COS

Last updated: 2022-02-23 18:02:30

StreamLive allows you to output HLS files to COS for archiving, for which you need to create a bucket in COS first and grant StreamLive access to the bucket.

  1. Activate the COS service and create a COS bucket.

Before outputting files to COS for archiving, you need to activate COS. After activating COS, go to the COS console, choose Bucket List on the left sidebar, and click Create Bucket to create a COS bucket in your region.


  1. Set the output type to HLS_ARCHIVE. Go back to the StreamLive console, and select HLS_ARCHIVE for Output Group Type.


  1. Authorize StreamLive to access the COS bucket. As you have not granted StreamLive access to your COS bucket, the COS destination fields are grayed out and cannot be entered. Click click here as instructed, and an authorization dialog box will pop up. Click Authorize Now to enter the authorization page, and then click Grant to complete the authorization.


After completing the authorization, go back to the StreamLive console and click Authorization completed. The COS destination fields are now editable.


  1. Enter the COS URL for archiving based on the COS bucket created, which is in the format of http://.cos..myqcloud.com/path.

  2. Complete other channel configuration described in StreamLive Channel Management and save and submit the configuration.
