Integrating a CDN
CDN's allow many viewers to stream your transcoded video simultaneously while protecting your broadcaster node from being inundated with requests. Any requests that come into your site or DApp for video streaming through Livepeer will pull the video from the network, but will be served off of a CDN.
- Make sure you have livepeer installed.
- Make sure your Livepeer broadcaster is running on ports
- Make sure your stream is playing when directly requesting it from the Livepeer Broadcaster.
- Make sure you have a compatible wallet with enough MEDIA to use the CDN service. MEDIA is currently available to buy in the following markets.
Adding your Livepeer broadcaster to Media Network
Access the Media App, connect your wallet and add a new CDN resource. Specify IP, port and approve the transaction.
In this specific case, our Livepeer broadcaster node is running at
Finalizing the process
If everything went smoothly and the transaction was approved and confirmed, you'll see your new resource ID and which origin it points to. Congrats! Your Livepeer broadcaster is now powered and scaled by Media Network's dCDN. End-users accessing the new link will load the streams from their closest Media Edge node instead of your original server.
Testing the stream
