Stream relay from a live center
After you ingest a live stream in ApsaraVideo Live, you can use media processing features such as transcoding to process the stream and then relay the stream to a third-party ingest URL. In this case, you are charged based on the peak number of streams relayed per day.
The unit price is USD 0.62/stream/day.
