Turn stream / broadcast on when link is cilcked



Can someone point me in the right direction?

I am going to have a list of links to pages with cameras embedded on them.
Like this:

Camera 1
Camera 2
Camera 3
Camera 4

When the user clicks the link I need it to take them to the page where that camera is embedded BUT I also need to automatically turn on the broadcast.

I know how to start the broadcast like this:
curl -X POST http://localhost:5080/LiveApp/rest/v2/broadcasts/broadcast-id/start

And I can figure out to do that with a link...

I guess the hard part is how to make the link do both things:
Start the broadcast AND go to the page with the camera embedded.

Hi @Kmax1940,

Have a good day. I have some ideas for that:

1. You may check status of broadcast in the player page. If it's offline, you can call CURL request in Camera 1.

2. You can check status of broadcasts in lists section. If it's offline, you can send a query/post parameter to Camera 1 page. So you can start in Camera 1. 

Both of these options can doable. You can show broadcast starting message before the playing.

Thanks you for the question. I think it's good idea for feature request. We may add an option for that. It will save a lot of bandwidth resources.

Best Regards,
