Queries the transcoding configurations of live streams under a main streaming domain.

Usage note

This operation is applicable to the main streaming domains.

QPS limit

A single user can perform a maximum of 60 queries per second (QPS). Throttling is triggered when the number of calls per second exceeds the QPS limit. The throttling may affect your business. Thus, we recommend that you observe the QPS limit on this operation. For more information about what a single user means and the QPS details, see QPS limit on an API operation in ApsaraVideo Live.


OpenAPI Explorer automatically calculates the signature value. For your convenience, we recommend that you call this operation in OpenAPI Explorer. OpenAPI Explorer dynamically generates the sample code of the operation for different SDKs.
