getIngest simplifies the process of preparing ingest sources for broadcasting by standardizing them into WHIP URLs.

Input Types

The function supports a variety of input types to accommodate different broadcasting setups:

  • String: Directly returns the string if it’s a valid URL. Constructs a WHIP URL using a base URL for stream keys.
  • LivepeerStream: Uses the streamKey from Livepeer stream data to generate a WHIP URL.
  • CloudflareStreamData: Extracts the URL from Cloudflare stream data objects.

Optional parameters (opts) include:

  • baseUrl: The base URL for constructing WHIP URLs. Essential when the input is a stream key.

Output Format

The function outputs a WHIP URL string suitable for use in broadcasting setups, or null if the input can’t be processed into a valid WHIP URL.
