            'channelArn': 'string',

Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • nextToken (string) –

      If there are more streams than maxResults, use nextToken in the request to get the next set.

    • streams (list) –

      List of streams.

      • (dict) –

        Summary information about a stream.

        • channelArn (string) –

          Channel ARN for the stream.

        • health (string) –

          The stream’s health.

        • startTime (datetime) –

          Time of the stream’s start. This is an ISO 8601 timestamp; note that this is returned as a string.

        • state (string) –

          The stream’s state. Do not rely on the OFFLINE state, as the API may not return it; instead, a “NotBroadcasting” error will indicate that the stream is not live.

        • streamId (string) –

          Unique identifier for a live or previously live stream in the specified channel.

        • viewerCount (integer) –

          A count of concurrent views of the stream. Typically, a new view appears in viewerCount within 15 seconds of when video playback starts and a view is removed from viewerCount within 1 minute of when video playback ends. A value of -1 indicates that the request timed out; in this case, retry.
