Streaming Videos in Your Livestream Using the Agora Cloud Player

What's this blog post about?

In this blog post, we discuss how to use Agora Cloud Player service to stream a cloud video to all users in a video call or livestream. The prerequisites include an Agora developer account, Node.js LTS release, and a high-level understanding of React and Node/Express. To enable the RTMP Converter, go to the Usage tab in the Agora console, select your project, click on the RTMP Converter submenu, and enable it. Get customer credentials from the RESTful API page and grab the App ID from the project management tab. The back-end service is built using Express, which listens for requests from the website front end and calls the Agora Cloud Player endpoints with the required credentials.
