How do I estimate my Live streaming monthly usage?

During a video or audio session, each user needs to both publish (upload their video/audio content), and subscribe (download video/audio content from the other users).

Our Livestreaming partner charges for subscribed minutes – we don’t charge for published minutes.

The total number of subscribed minutes depends on the length of the session and the use case, as 1:1 and multi-party sessions work slightly differently. You can refer to the table below to calculate the total number of subscribed minutes (when all participants are both publishing and subscribing).

Use Case How to calculate usage? Example
1:1 or 2-participant session  

Each participant subscribes to the stream from the other participant.
Number of streamed subscribed minutes = 2 x duration of session
15-minute session with 2 participants:
Total number of streamed subscribed minutes billed will be (2 x 15), which equals 30 streamed subscribed minutes
Multi-party session
Each participant subscribes to streams from the other participants
Number of streamed subscribed minutes = n x (n-1) x duration of session
(where n is number of participants)
15-minute session with 4 participants:
Total number of streamed subscribed minutes billed will be (4 x 3 x 15), which equals 180 streamed subscribed minutes
Broadcast – One-to-many
Audience will subscribe to 1 stream from the Broadcaster
Number of streamed subscribed minutes = n x duration of session
(where n is the audience size)
30-minute session with 1 broadcaster and audience-size of 100:
The total number of streamed subscribed minutes billed will be (100 x 30), which equals 3000 streamed subscribed minutes.
Broadcast – Few-to-many
Audience will subscribe to the streams from each of the broadcasters. Additionally broadcasters will subscribe to streams from other broadcasters
No. of streamed subscribed minutes = (m x (m-1) x duration of session) + (m x n x duration of session)
(where m is the number of broadcasters & n is the audience-size)
30-minute session with 3 broadcasters and audience-size of 100:
The total number of streamed subscribed minutes billed will be (3 x 2 x 30) + (3 x 100 x 30), which equals 9180 streamed subscribed minutes
