Streaming address

Last Updated: May 11, 2018

The live streaming includes Center Streaming and Edge Streaming.

Center Streaming: Pushes the video streams to the live center. It is applicable to the scenarios where the live video is played in a single region.

Edge Streaming: Preferentially pushes the video content to the CDN node closest to user, and then to the live center through the intranet. Alibaba Cloud has more than 1,000 CDN nodes, covers the big or small cities, and is appropriate for the scenarios where the host or hostess is located in different regions.

The structure of the streaming address

A streaming address consists of three live management units, that is Domain, AppName and StreamName. More than one AppName can be created under each Domain, and more than one StreamName can be created under each AppName.

Center streaming

Address example:rtmp://video-center.alivecdn.com/AppName/StreamName?vhost= stream playing domain

For example: You have an App. The stream playing domain ispull.aliyunlive.com; the Appnameislive; and more than one live streams can be created underlive.

RTMP format: rtmp: //video-center.alivecdn.com/live/stream01?vhost=pull.aliyunlive.com

Edge streaming

Address example:rtmp://streaming domain/AppName/StreamName

For example: You have an APP. The streaming domain ispush.aliyunlive.com; the stream playing domain ispull.aliyunlive.com; theappnameislive; and more than one streams can be created underlive. The streaming address is:

RTMP format:rtmp:// push.aliyunlive.com/live/stream01
