Adds a domain name to ApsaraVideo Live. This operation allows you to add only one domain name at a time.


  • You must activate ApsaraVideo Live before you can create a domain name. For more information, see Activate ApsaraVideo Live and purchase resource plans.
  • You must obtain an Internet content provider (ICP) filling for a domain name before you can add the domain name to ApsaraVideo Live.
Note Since February 19, 2019, domain names added by using the AddLiveDomain operation and the AddCdnDomain operation do not support live center ingest. To use live center ingest, perform the following steps: Call the AddLiveDomain operation and set the LiveDomainType parameter to liveEdge to create an ingest domain. Call the AddLiveDomain operation and set the LiveDomainType parameter to liveVideo to create a streaming domain. Then, call the AddLiveDomainMapping operation to map the ingest domain to the streaming domain. Live domains created by using the AddLiveDomain operation before February 19, 2019 still support live center ingest.
