1) It is not possible to assign the same channel to different users. This is to prevent situations such as the one you described
2) If you do not assign a channel, a new channel will be automatically created for them
3) These videos will be stored on our servers and it counts towards the storage of the subscription plan you picked
Hope this helps and please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with.
Thank you for your answers. I have some more questions about the channel creation for front-end users based on use cases:
After a user has live streamed, can I delete their channel, to make room for another user/channel? I anticipate several use cases where a user will only want to live stream sporadically. 1. A user wants to "try" live streaming, creates a channel, and then decides not to continue using live streaming. 2. A user only intermittently uses live streaming (say once a month).
If we start with your basic price plan (150 channels), can I delete user channels that are obsolete in the above use cases in order to make sure we stay within the plan-assigned channel limit (150)?
And, if a user (whose channel I have deleted) then wants to live stream again in future, will wpstream create and allocate a new channel for them?
That is correct, you can delete any channel you want at any time. The user that chooses to live stream sporadically can have his old channel deleted and when they decide to live stream again, a new channel will be created for them and the process repeats. This way, you can have up to 150 channels by deleting old/unused channels. I hope this clears your doubts! Let me know if you have any follow up questions – happy to help.
