This document lists the quotas and limits that apply to Live Stream API.
A quota restricts how much of a particular shared Google Cloud resource your Cloud project can use, including hardware, software, and network components.
Quotas are part of a system that does the following:
- Monitors your use or consumption of Google Cloud products and services.
- Restricts your consumption of those resources for reasons including ensuring fairness and reducing spikes in usage.
- Maintains configurations that automatically enforce prescribed restrictions.
- Provides a means to make or request changes to the quota.
When a quota is exceeded, in most cases, the system immediately blocks access to the relevant Google resource, and the task that you're trying to perform fails. In most cases, quotas apply to each Cloud project and are shared across all applications and IP addresses that use that Cloud project.
There are also limits on Live Stream API resources. These limits are unrelated to the quota system. Limits cannot be changed unless otherwise stated.
Live stream sessions last for 24 hours after you start a channel. After 24 hours in any
STOPPING, the channel may be restarted.
A mux stream with a
tscontainer must contain exactly one audio stream and up to one video stream.
Only HLS manifests can contain mux streams with the
tscontainer. Manifests cannot contain a mixture of
The following regional quotas don't reset over time and instead are released when you release the resource:
|Quotas per region||Value|
|HD output streams||20|
|SD output streams||40|
The following quotas apply to Live Stream API requests:
|API requests per minute||6000|
|Operation requests per minute per region||1200|
|Get requests per minute per region||1200|
|List requests per minute per region||300|
|Mutation requests per minute per region||300|
These quotas apply to each Google Cloud project and are shared across all applications and IP addresses using that project.
Input streams must follow the limits provided below:
Per-channel resource limits
The following limits apply to each individual channel:
|Resource per channel||Value|
|HD video output streams||3|
|Total video output streams||10|
|Audio output streams||20|
|Sprite sheet settings||3|
1 Once the limit is reached, you must delete the oldest events to make room for new events.
If you want to increase any of your quotas for Live Stream API, you can use the Google Cloud console to request a quota increase. For details, see Requesting higher quota.
