import ApiVideoLiveStream
  1. Create a ApiVideoLiveStream object with your default audio and video configuration
class ViewController: UIViewController {
    var liveStream:  ApiVideoLiveStream?
    @IBOutlet var viewCamera: UIView!
    override func viewDidLoad() {
        let audioConfig = AudioConfig(bitrate: 32 * 1000)
        let videoConfig = VideoConfig(bitrate: 2 * 1024 * 1024, resolution: Resolutions.RESOLUTION_720, fps: 30)
        do {
            liveStream = try ApiVideoLiveStream(initialAudioConfig: audioConfig, initialVideoConfig: videoConfig, preview: preview)
        } catch {
            print (error)
  1. Start your live stream with startStreaming
liveStream?.startStreaming(streamKey: "YOUR_STREAM_KEY")
