Address Generator

Last updated: 2022-03-20 20:26:20

    The CSS console provides an address generator. You can enter URL information in the generator to quickly generate push/playback URLs. The live streaming URL is mainly composed of a domain name (domain), an application name (AppName), a stream name (StreamName) and an authentication key (Key).

    After an URL is generated, you can select the URL and copy it, click the button next to it to copy it, or scan the QR code next to it to get it.

    Notes

    • CSS does not record previously generated URLs. Please copy a URL once it is generated.
    • If you need to generate multiple live streaming URLs, we recommend that you splice them as instructed in Splicing Live Streaming URLs.
    • CSS provides a test domain name xxxx.livepush.myqcloud.com. You can use it for push testing, but we do not recommend using it as the push domain name for your real business.
    • You can get a URL by scanning the QR code with Tencent Cloud Toolkit.
    • If the stream name suffix is the same as the transcoding template ID, the stream cannot be played back. Under this situation, please change the stream name.

    Prerequisites

    You have logged in to the CSS console, and have added a push domain name.

    Parameter Description

    ParameterDescription
    Domain Type Select Push Domain or Playback Domain.
    AppName Live streaming application name, used to identify the live stream file storage path. Default value: `live`.
    Only letters, digits, and symbols are allowed.
    StreamName Custom stream name. It is a unique identifier of a live stream.
    Only letters, digits, and symbols are allowed.
    Expiration Time
  • The expiration time of a playback URL is the configured time plus the playback authentication valid period.
  • The push URL expiration time is the same as the configured expiration time.
  • Transcoding Template
  • Applicable only when you select a playback domain.
  • If you select a transcoding template, the generated URL will be the one for the transcoded stream. To play back the original live stream, you don't need to select a transcoding template.
