Event Message Notification

Last updated: 2020-02-25 09:46:46


When an LVB event is triggered, you can use the event message notification to receive the event information. Message notifications are supported for the following events:

  • LVB push event
  • LVB push interruption event
  • LVB recording file generation event
  • LVB screencapturing file generation event

This document does not cover the callback notification for porn detection events. For more information, see Best Practices - LVB Porn Detection.

Overall process:

  1. The host configures an event message notification URL and related features such as recording and screencapturing in the console or through TencentCloud APIs.
  • The host pushes a stream or interrupts the push.
  • When an event occurs inside the LVB service, a message will be sent to viewers via the event message notification service.

Event Message Notification Configuration

The event message notification can be configured with the:

  • TencentCloud API
  • Console

Different event message notification URLs can be configured for different types of events, including:

  • Push event notification URL (StreamBeginNotifyUrl)
  • Push interruption event notification URL (StreamEndNotifyUrl)
  • Recording event notification URL (RecordNotifyUrl)
  • Screencapturing event notification URL (SnapshotNotifyUrl)

Event Message Notification Protocol

Network protocol

Request: HTTP POST request with a JSON packet. The specific packet content of each type of message is described later.

Response: HTTP STATUS CODE = 200. The server ignores the specific content of the response packet. For protocol-friendliness, it is recommended to add JSON: {"code":0} to the response.

Notification reliability

The event notification service has a retry mechanism with an interval of 60 seconds for a total of 3 retries. In order to avoid the impact of retries on your server and network bandwidth, make sure that the response packet can be returned normally. A retry is triggered in the following cases:

  • No response packet is returned for a long time (at least 20 seconds).
  • The HTTP status code in the response is not 200.

Event Message Notification Parameter Descriptions

Common Parameter Description

Field Name Type Description
event_type int Event notification message type. 1: push event; 0: push interruption event; 100: recording event; 200: screencapturing event
sign string Event notification signature
t int64 Event notification signature expiration time (UNIX timestamp)
  • t (expiration time): The default expiration time of a message notification from Tencent Cloud is 10 minutes. If the time specified by the t value in a message notification has elapsed, it can be determined that this notification is invalid, thereby preventing network replay attacks. The format of t is a decimal UNIX timestamp, i.e., the number of seconds that has elapsed since January 1, 1970 00:00 (UTC/GMT time).
  • sign (security signature): sign = MD5(key + t). Tencent Cloud splices the encryption key and t, calculates the sign value through MD5, and places it in the notification message. After your backend server receives the notification message, it can confirm whether the sign is correct based on the same algorithm and then determine whether the message is indeed from the Tencent Cloud backend.

Key is the callback key in the Callback Configuration.

Message Bodies in Various Types

LVB push and push interruption events

  • For an LVB push event, event_type = 1
  • For an LVB push interruption event, event_type = 0
Field Name Type Description
appid int User APPID
app string Push domain name
appname string Push path
stream_id string Stream name
channel_id string Same as the stream name
event_time int64 UNIX timestamp when the event message is generated
sequence string Message serial number that identifies a push activity. The same push activity generates push and interruption messages with the same serial number
node string IP of the LVB access point
user_ip string User's push IP
stream_param string Parameters in the user's push URL
push_duration string Push duration in the push interruption event notification in milliseconds
errcode int Push interruption error code
errmsg string Push interruption error message
  • errcode (push interruption error code)
Error Code Error Description Reason
1 recv rtmp deleteStream The host actively interrupted the push
2 recv rtmp closeStream The host actively interrupted the push
3 recv() return 0 The host actively closed the TCP connection
4 recv() return error Exception with the TCP connection to the host
7 rtmp message large than 1M Exception with the received stream data
