The streams page provides a comprehensive list of all your streams, displaying their state (
ended), stream ID, stream name, whether they are part of a stream group, and their last update timestamp. Additionally, the pesence of tags allows for easier stream identification.

If a stream belongs to a stream group, you have the option to collapse the row and view the individual streams within the group, such as passthrough, first transcode, and second transcode.

Labels of the Stream List
This column indicates the current state of each stream.
created: The stream has never been live
live: The stream is live right now
deleted: The stream was live and is not outputting footage anymore.
The column displays a unique identifier for each stream and if the stream is an ABR stream it is also the stream group id.
The streamname („XXXXX-YYYYY“) shows the organisation hash and the unique stream name assigned to each stream.
Indicates whether the stream is an Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) stream. It shows the number of playouts for ABR streams, and for non-ABR streams, it displays "No ABR".
Timestamp of the most recent update or modification to the stream.
Assigned tags or labels for categorizing and identifying streams based on specific attributes or characteristics.
To streamline your search, you can utilize various filters such as selecting a date range to view specific streams, filtering streams by tags, or filtering by state.
These features enable you to efficiently manage and navigate through your streams, providing a clear and organized overview of your streaming content within the nanoStream Cloud Dashboard.
The "Select Date" filter allows you to choose any specific day and time range within the entire duration of your usage of the nanoStream Cloud. You can select a start date and time, as well as an end date and time.
All ABR Streams
You have the option to enable the "All ABR Streams" button, which allows you to view all individual streams, regardless of whether they are part of a stream group or not. To assist you in identifying stream groups, the stream ID of the corresponding stream group will be displayed underneath. However, please note that it may be a bit confusing to differentiate between individual streams and stream groups in this view.
Filter by tags
The tag filter allows you to look for streams based on specific tags. You can either manually type in the desired tag or choose from the existing tags that you have previously used. As you start typing at least 3 characters, the system will suggest tags that match the entered characters. To apply a tag, simply hit the "Enter" key after typing it.
The "Filter by State" option allows you to choose between different stream states:
live: This state indicates that the stream is currently active and being broadcasted live.
created: Streams in the "Created" state are newly created streams that are ready to be started or scheduled for future broadcasting.
ended: "Ended" streams have completed their live broadcasting and are no longer actively streaming.
deleted: Streams in the "Deleted" state have been removed or deleted from the system. Please note that you can only access the deleted streams once you select the "Deleted" option in the filter line. Also: It is not possible to see a stream overview of it.
