Prerequisites

To get the most out of this guide, you’ll need to:

2

Install the SDK

Get the Livepeer Python SDK.

pip install git+https://github.com/livepeer/livepeer-python.git
3

Initialize the SDK

The first step is to initialize the SDK with your Livepeer Studio API key.

import livepeer
from livepeer.models import components

lpClient = livepeer.Livepeer(
    api_key="<YOUR_BEARER_TOKEN_HERE>",
)
4

Use the SDK

Now that you have the SDK installed and initialized, you can use it in your app. Let’s create a stream.

import livepeer
from livepeer.models import components

lpClient = livepeer.Livepeer(
    api_key="<YOUR_BEARER_TOKEN_HERE>",
)

req = components.NewStreamPayload(
    name='test_stream',
)

res = lpClient.stream.create(req)

if res.stream is not None:
    # handle response
    pass
