Introduction

Injecting an online media stream is the action of adding an external audio or video stream to an ongoing live interactive streaming channel. It enables the hosts and audience in the channel to hear and see the additional stream while interacting with each other.

Applicable scenarios

  • Live sports: The host and audience can watch and simultaneously comment on events.
  • Music concerts, movies, and other entertainments: The hosts and audience can participate in real‑time discussions while watching them.
  • Additional perspectives: The host can inject video streams captured by drones or network cameras into a live streaming channel.

Working principles

The host in a live interactive streaming channel pulls an online media stream and pushes it through the Video Inject Server to the Agora Software‑Defined Real‑time Network (SD‑RTN™) and the channel.
