Last updated: 2019-11-29 18:30:22


1. API Description

  • API

  • Live_Channel_GetStatus*: This API is used to query whether a stream has a status of Broadcasting.

  • URL
    URL for calling API: http://fcgi.video.qcloud.com/common_access

  • Purpose
    To query whether a stream has a status of Broadcasting. It is implemented based on Tencent Cloud's detection of audio/video stream interruption, and thus may not be as fast and accurate as the active reporting of application in terms of real-time capability. But it can serve as a good supplementary means for checking and clearing up LVB streams regularly.

  • Note
    If the push LVB Code to be queried is never used to push streams, the 20601 error code is returned.

2. Input Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Note Required
APPID Customer ID int LVB APPID used for identifying customers Y
interface API name string For example: Get_LivePushStat Y
t Validity period int UNIX timestamp (decimal) Y
sign Security signature string MD5(key+t) Y
Param.s.channel_id LVB Code string A single LVB stream can be queried at one time Y

For historical reasons, the LVB Code parameter was defined as channel_id in some earlier APIs, and is defined as stream_id in new APIs.

3. Output Parameters

Parameter Name Description Type Note
ret Error code int 0: Successful; other values: Failed.
message Error message string Error message
