How-to Livestream a Dolby.io Conference on YouTube
Fabien Lavocat

Getting Started

The very first step is to create a Youtube account. Enabling your first live stream can take up to 24 hours. Once enabled, you can live stream instantly.

Once you have your Youtube account created and live stream enabled, login to Youtube Studio and click Go live to open Live Control Room.

Configure the stream how you want it to be broadcasted. Provide a title, privacy and anything related to your streaming.

Note the Stream URL, in this example: rtmp://a.rtmp.youtube.com/live2 and copy the Stream key (e.g. ab12-cd34-ef56-gh78-ij90).

Now, during your conference, you will need to make a REST API call to the Dolby API with the URL of the RTMP endpoint:

POST /v1/api/conferences/mix/{conference_id}/live/start HTTP/1.1
Host: session.voxeet.com
Authorization: Basic base64(CONSUMER_KEY + ":" + CONSUMER_SECRET)
Content-Type: application/json
{
    "uri": "rtmp://a.rtmp.youtube.com/live2/{stream_key}"
}

A few seconds after calling the API, you will be able to see the live stream starting on Youtube.

If you need to stop the live stream before the conference ends, call the following API:

POST /v1/api/conferences/mix/{conference_id}/live/stop HTTP/1.1
Host: session.voxeet.com
Authorization: Basic base64(CONSUMER_KEY + ":" + CONSUMER_SECRET)
Content-Type: application/json
