Hi @Developer
Let me try to explain.

Start broadcast API is used to start the stream source broadcast type like RTSP, IP camera or Playlist. If you have created any stream source then using below postman sample, you can start the stream on the server.

curl --location --request POST 'https://domain:5443/App-name/rest/v2/broadcasts/streamId/start' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' 

You need to replace your domain name, application name & stream Id.

Now to call Rest API, please make sure that your IP is whitelisted in the Rest API filter. If you do not have any static IP, you can allow all IPs with CIDR block. For more reference about IP filter for Rest API, please check:

If you want to start publishing the live stream from browser using Rest API, it is not doable. You need to publish the stream manually from browser. Please check https://resources.antmedia.io/docs/webrtc-publishing

In community edition, only WebRTC publish is available but WebRTC playback is available in Enterprise edition.

I hope it is clear. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
