Get a stream's status on ZEGO RTC Server

Last updated:2022-03-22 13:07

1 Description

Returns the current status of the specified stream on ZEGO's RTC server, which indicates whether the stream exists on the server. This API is only valid for streams published to ZEGO's RTC server but not for streams directly published to CDN or ZEGO's stream mixing server.

We recommend you use the server-to-server callbacks Stream created and Stream closed to maintain stream information on your server. This API is provided as an auxiliary method to check the existence of a stream when needed.

Before using this interface for the first time, you need to contact ZEGO technical support to activate it.
