A LiveChannel can be enabled or disabled. You can use PutLiveChannelStatus to switch the status of a LiveChannel.

If a LiveChannel is in the disabled status, you cannot push streams to the LiveChannel. If you are pushing a stream to a LiveChannel when the status of the LiveChannel is switched to disabled, your client is disconnected from the LiveChannel (there may be a delay of 10 seconds).

Detail analysis

  • If no client is pushing streams to a LivaChannel, you can switch the status of the LiveChannel by using PutLiveChannel, which creates a new LiveChannel.
  • If a stream is being pushed to a LiveChannel by other clients, you cannot use PutLiveChannel to create a new LiveChannel. You can switch the status of the LiveChannel to disabled only by using PutLiveChannelStatus.
