Points to keep in mind

  • Cisco Webex watermark would be displayed at the top left corner while streaming into the Airmeet session and can’t be removed as it provided by Webex Meetings and Events by default.

  • There would be a latency of about ~15-20 seconds between the stream being sent and the stream being received.

  • If the input stops midway during a live session, it will freeze at the last frame.

  • If multiple sessions in an Airmeet are being streamed in via RTMP, each will have a different stream key & URL. (in case of multiple meetings or events hosted on Webex).
