ScaleEngine Documentation: Channel Streaming Account - Setting up Streams


The Control Panel Live Streams page allows you to create live streams, so you can add the live stream to a list.

The "Add Stream" Section

Field Description Valid Usage
Application: The ScaleEngine Application to which you will SEND your stream. Channel Accounts stream to the accountname-chorigin application
Stream: This is the stream name you are creating, which you will send with your encoder. Use lower-case letters for your stream names. Numbers and underscore is also acceptable. Avoid punctuation and capitals.
Username: Create a username to send. Create your stream name. You can use any combination of lower-case letters and numbers here.
Password You are setting a password to transmit to us with the username. You can use any characters here to create a password. You will either transmit the actual password, or the hash of it that we generate on each stream's page.
Add You can only "add" a stream if you have purchased streams. Currently, you need to request additional stream from support.

The "Streams" Section

Field Description Valid Usage
Stream This is a link to the stream's page where we show you the origin base URL and publishing URLs. Remember, this is the stream name to send with your encoder.
Application This is the *chorigin* application, that you will send a stream to. Be sure it is correct. Generally, accountname-chorigin
User The username authorized to send this stream is listed here. You can use the same user each time, or different ones, depending on your business rules.
Password You can update password for this user here. Use passwords that meet your business security requirements. You never have to transmit the actual password, you can always provide the Origin Base URL with a hashed password, so users won't know the actual passwords you have set.
Revoke Click this to delete the stream, and its user and password. You must re-create any stream if you revoke a stream.
Status This graphic is greyed out if you are not streaming yet, and is Green if you are streaming. Stream status is only relevant to this particular live stream, not the list stream.
