Start a live event

Copy link

The host can start the live event by calling startEvent() as shown below. When the live event starts, participants can receive the media stream to watch and listen to the host.

liveEvent.startEvent { /* it: SendbirdException */ }

The liveEvent.startStreaming() method will be implicitly called within the Live SDK to establish the connection with the Sendbird server and stream media if the host hadn’t streamed media in check the settings of a live event. If the host had called the liveEvent.startStreaming() to test media streaming earlier, the connection established from then will be used.
