Create a live event
The first step is to configure the live event by providing a
LiveEvent.CreateParams object. You can provide some basic information related to the event such as the type of the live event, title, and the cover image that would show on the thumbnail. If not specified, the live event ID will show as the title and the thumbnail will show as black.
When creating a live event, you need to provide the
hostType to specify the type of a live event. The supported features of an event will vary depending on the live event type. The
hostType of the event can't be changed once the event is created. For instance, if you wish to transition from an audio-only event to an event with both audio and video, a brand new live event must be created.
A live event requires a host for which you can provide candidates in the
userIdsForHost property. Up to ten users can be set as host candidates and only one of them can act as a host for the event. When an incumbent host exits the event, any other candidates specified in
userIdsForHost can enter the live event and act as a host.
Once you have configured the
LiveEvent object, you can create a live event by calling the
createLiveEvent() method. If the creation was successful, a
liveEvent instance is returned, the status of the live event changes to
created and a new open channel becomes available in which the host can chat.
In case the open channel isn't available, call
fetchOpenChannel() to fetch the open channel.
