Agora provides an open-source OpenLive-Android sample project on GitHub. This document introduces how to run this project and experience a live video streaming implemented by the Agora SDK.
To create an Agora project, do the following:
Agora automatically assigns each project an App ID as a unique identifier.
To copy this App ID, find your project on the Project Management page in Agora Console, and click the copy icon to the right of the App ID.
To ensure communication security, Agora recommends using tokens to authenticate users joining a channel.
For testing purposes, Agora Console supports generating RTC temporary tokens. To generate an RTC temporary token:
Basic-Video-Broadcasting/OpenLive-Androidsample project. Fill in the
app/src/main/res/values/strings.xmlfile with the App ID and temporary token generated in Agora Console.
// Replace <#YOUR APP ID#> with your App ID in the string format <string name="agora_app_id"><#YOUR APP ID#></string> // Replace #YOUR ACCESS TOKEN# with your temporary token in the string format <string name="agora_access_token">#YOUR ACCESS TOKEN#</string>
Connect the Android device to your computer, open the OpenLive-Android sample project on Android Studio, and then build and run the project.
After the IDE successfully installs the app on your Android device, you can see the following user interface:
You have joined the test channel by default. If you want to experience a live video streaming, you can use the Agora Web demo app to interact with your Android device. Ensure that you enter the same App ID, channel name, and temporary token in the Agora Web demo app.
