Livestream access control

Hi. I am creating web platform with live video broadcasting.

I need to control viewers: restrict time of watching, remove user from stream.

Do you have any solution for this?

Hi there,
and thanks for the question.

Today, when you livestream with api.video - we’ll give you a url for the player. Anyone with this url can watch the video.

However, we are working on “private livestreams” where each url will be unique and work for just one viewer. This will be ready in early 2021. (We have a concept of private Video on demand, and this will work much the same way).

In terms of restricting time watched of a video, or the ability to remove a viewer from watching the stream - we do not have that capability today.

Hi @hcbogdan,

FYI, our private livestreams are now live in Beta
