Restream Access

How to Assign Restream Access to the Sub-user in Livebox?

The Livebox admin can share the server channels with the sub-users for the live streaming purpose.

When the admin gives permissions to any user to use the server channels, the sub-user gets the power to restream the server live contents or even conduct a live stream by themselves and push on to all their streaming media.

There are different ways to assign restream access to the sub-user. Follow the below steps to assign users for the Restream Access Role.

  • Go to User& Roles.

  • Go to ‘Add Role’ in User& Roles.
  • Then click the ‘Create Role Now’ button.

  • A dialog box ‘Add Role’ opens, where you can enter a role name.
  • Select the Restream option under Client Portal Access.
  • Then you can choose between the Dedicated Channel/Shared option.

Note:  

Dedicated Channel- If you enable this option, you give permission to your users to create streaming channels by themselves.

Shared- If you enable this option, you give the streaming permission to your users only to the selected channels of your server.   

1. Dedicated Channel

  • After enabling the ‘Dedicated Channel’ option, click the gear icon.

  • A dialog box ‘Push Destination Settings’ opens, enter ‘Push Destination Count’.
  • Though the user gets permission to create streaming channels, it is completely up to the admin to decide whether to show/hide embed codes of the streaming channels. 
  • Then click the ‘Submit’ button.

Note:  Push Destination count is the number of streaming destinations that the sub-user gets access to push Live streams. And if you want to hide the embed code of the streaming channels to your sub-user, you can check the Hide Embed Code box.
