The getting started tutorial will walk you through the steps required to send a livestream into the Livepeer public network for transcoding and play it back inside your application.

Note: for the sake of this guide, we'll be livestreaming using the Rinkeby test network. You can think of this network like a sandbox environment for testing your livestreams. If you're livestreaming in a production setting make sure to change the network to mainnet. Learn more about supported networks, including Ethereum mainnet and Rinkeby, here.
