Stream Metadata

Stream metadata object

Stream metadata returns information on an active stream. The response will include a data object that will include various information depending on the type and state of the stream being requested. Note that the structure will be variable so any code reading this result will need to handle some entries being potentially absent or different without warning.

The output will include metadata about the video/audio codecs, and if the stream is recording. Any active push publishes or transcodes will be shown. For channels, the active playlist ID and item will be shown.
