Agora provides an open-source OpenLive-Android sample project on GitHub. This document introduces how to run this project and experience a live video streaming implemented by the Agora SDK.
Create a project in Agora Console, as follows:
Log in to Console, and click in the left navigation menu to enter the Project Management page.
Enter your project name, and select Secure mode: APP ID + Token for the authentication mechanism in the pop-up window.
Click Submit. You can see the created project on the Project Management page.
Agora automatically assigns each project an App ID as a unique identifier.
To copy this App ID, find your project on the Project Management page in Agora Console, and click the eye icon to the right of the App ID.
To ensure communication security, Agora uses tokens (dynamic keys) to authenticate users joining a channel.
Agora Console supports generating temporary tokens for testing purposes.
On the Project Management page, find your project, and click to open the Token page.
Enter a channel name, and click Generate Temp Token to get a temporary token. When joining the channel, ensure that the channel name is the same with the one that you use to generate the temporary token.

You have joined the test channel by default. If you want to experience a live video streaming, you can use the Agora Web demo app to interact with your Android device. Ensure that you enter the same App ID, channel name, and temporary token in the Agora Web demo app.
