1. API Description

Domain name for API request:

This API is used to get the stream status, such as active, inactive, or disabled.
Note: this API is used to query the stream status, and should not be relied too much upon in important business scenarios.


  1. You should not rely on the results returned by this API to initiate/interrupt live streams.
  2. The application can get and store the status of live rooms via Stream Push and Interruption Event Notification.
  3. You can use the DescribeLiveStreamOnlineList API to regularly (with the interval larger than 1 minute) check the status of live rooms monitored by the application.
  4. If you find that a stream is inactive using the stream status query API, you can use other above-mentioned methods to check its status.
  5. If access or resolution errors occur when you use the API to query, you can regard the stream as active, and do not perform operations on the application.

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

We recommend you to use API Explorer
