When you first set up a stream, it sends a request to our CDN to create a stream with the name and password that you requested on servers across the world. Akamai's required provisioning time can take up to two hours. This wait time only occurs when you create a new stream. After the stream is created, it can be reused over and over again.

While you're waiting for your stream to provision, you can set up your encoder with your new stream settings and embed your stream onto your website. Just hit that Edit button on the right of the screen and it'll give you all of the information that you need!

Once you're all set up, and your stream is finished provisioning, you can run a test stream and view everything in the Live Monitor.
