Cloud Dashboard Overview - (V2)

We upgraded to V3

With the release of nanoStream Cloud 2022, it is now even easier to create and manage live streams, especially for Adaptive Bitrate and secure streams!

Find the documentation of V3 here.

What is the nanoStream Cloud/Bintu Dashboard?

The nanoStream Cloud/Bintu Dashboard is a Stream Management Dashboard that helps you improve your streaming workflow. It helps you to create, customize and manage streams in an intuitive way and mirrors all features and functions of the bintu API.

Every stream has at least:

  • one ingest stream which is used by your live encoder connected to a live source (camera)

  • one playout stream which can be played with nanoPlayer on all browsers

  • "Stream Group" for Adaptive Bitrate: a single passthrough stream with the same quality as the incoming encoder stream, plus additional streams for adaptive bitrate

Key features

  • Compact overview of your organization
  • Intuitive way of creating and customizing a new stream
  • Create transcoded streams for adaptive bitrate
  • Create secured streams (token security playback)
  • New Stream Overview
  • Watch playback immediately
  • Easy steps to playout (from Ingest to Playout)
  • Code snippets to embed on your own web page

New Stream: Access Playout

If your organisation has enabled our "secure" feature you will be able to click on the live playout URL without having to create a new token. This is going to happen in the background. The token will be valid for an hour. If you want to create a customized token, you can do that by clicking on the "Create Secure Token" Button next to the Header. There you can set up an expiration date and specific options like the IP or referer and a single tag.

Stream Overview

The stream overview shows all informations the stream is providing, including the stream info (state, streamid, created at, stream tags, timecode, transcoding, push url), the ingest informations (RTMP streamname, RTMP url) and the playout informations (H5Live (Ultra-low latency), H5Live config object, RTMP Playout, HLS Playout). You can copy properties to the clipboard by clicking on the copy button on the right.
