How to Create Multi CDN Providers on Livebox?

Create CDN providers from the Livebox MultiCDN settings to deliver smooth streaming content to various geographic locations. Through the CDN providers, you can deliver a vast amount of contents across the globe and offer a better experience to your end-users. The other advantage of using the Multi CDN providers is, if one CDN provider network fails or faces any interruption, still the content will continue to stream live through the other alternative providers. So it’s simply if the one CDN provider goes down, the other one comes in rescue.

Let's see how to create CDN providers to increase the efficiency of the live streaming process.

  • Go to MultiCDN under Settings from the navigation menu.

  • In Multi CDN settings, click on the add icon to add your streaming server CDN groups.

Note:  You can create streaming CDN group with the streaming URLs of your Livebox server channel or any other RTMP server.

Always see to that a streaming content or any other content related to the current live streaming is running on your CDN provider so that when the failover occurs you can easily tackle the situation by turning on the CDN provider.
