Im looking for a way to share live channels between to sites with the same account? Im looking to stream to two sites at the same time, I can do it but I need to go to the both sites, start the channel and then go to my RMTP streamer and start streaming. Do you have the solution for this?
Thanks.January 11, 2021 at 1:24 pm #106365
Hi Maximo, it should go as following:
1. apply for 3rd party playback here
2. set up streaming on site A as you normally would, be sure to uncheck the “Lock To Website” setting in channel settings
3. get the .m3u8 URL provided for the channel you set up on site A, via the procedure offered in step 1
4. play the .m3u8 URL above, by means of a 3rd party player, on site B
Please note that this is a ‘off label’ procedure and we can’t make any guarantees it will work in any context, feel free to provide us with feedback nevertheless.February 6, 2021 at 6:24 pm #110805shibe_tpcParticipant
In the case of 3rd party video player used for PayPerView streams, is there a way to determine if the user has access? Like a cookie or something? Or is it just that if they obtain the link, they can view the stream? Thx 🙂February 8, 2021 at 1:51 pm #110999
The intended behavior for PPV and 3rd party players is for the video to only show up if the respective piece of content has been purchased; however behavior may vary between various players.
What’s the feature (i.e. of one particular 3rd party player) you’re after ?February 8, 2021 at 3:56 pm #111017shibe_tpcParticipant
Thanks for the response 🙂 I guess I’m just wondering about the execution of the feature. For example, if access to content is based on a purchase in WooCommerce on one site, and I’m using a second site or streaming direct to an external player, then the second site or external player is unaware of the purchase or its restrictions, correct? So long as a user has access to the media link itself (not behind a password protected page for example) then the stream will play?February 9, 2021 at 1:33 pm #111148
On the second site the content will either play unrestricted or not play at all, possibly depending on channel settings. In theory at least, you’ll have to try for yourself to know for sure.
