Enter a live event
A user can enter any live events that are in
ongoing states by calling the
liveEvent.enter() method. When a user enters a live event, the user is counted as a participant.
When a user enters a live event that is
ready, they can chat but can't watch the event yet because the host's media stream isn't available to them. When a user enters an
ongoing live event, they can chat and watch the event when the host starts streaming.
In a live event that supports video streaming, a
HTMLVideoElement must be provided for users to watch the live event when they enter the event. To watch the media content streamed from the host, set the video view by calling
For a participant to receive the video view of the host who starts the live event, set the video view using
liveEvent.host.hostId. When a different user becomes a host during the live event, subscribe to the
onHostEntered event and set the video using
liveEvent.host.hostId to view the new host's video.
For the best experience, here are some components included in the SDK that you can use in creating the participant view.
