Is it possible to create a stream channel programatically?

I’d like to allow users to purchase a product which will then create a stream channel. Is it possible to do this?
Is it possible to view the API somewhere?

Not at this time, sorry to say
Many of the operations are API-driven but it’s missing proper documentation and it may change without notice for now.
We have considered it but it’s just not a popular request. You’ve just up-voted it nevertheless.March 29, 2020 at 11:25 am #63630Christopher HeneghanParticipant
Thanks mate. This is a big part of how we’d like to run a part of what we’re doing. We want our customers to be able to stream to their own channels but only at allocated times i.e. Saturday night at 7pm-9pm. What do you think would be the best approach for this one?March 30, 2020 at 5:23 am #63808GabrielModerator
There’s 2 things you want to look up
1. the theme (but not yet the plugin) allows regular users to broadcast, see https://wpstream.net/how-to-build-your-own-twitch-website/ and https://wpstream.net/release-notes-wpstream-1-1-july-30/
2. the beta of “static rtmp” feature is going well https://wpstream.net/forums/topic/static-rtmp-feature-beta-available-upon-request/ you could use that to manually create channels and (still manually) distribute broadcast URLs to your streamers, this way they don’t need to interact with your admin
That’s all we have for now, and moving forward at speed
