Maximum time for a Live input

Hi,

What is the maximum time limit for a Live input?
Today my live stream stopped after 7 hours. The dashboard was showing that the Live stream is connected but there was no video shown. This happened for about 45 minutes.
I had to create a new Live stream.
Can anyone guide me as to why this might have happened? And how to avoid it?

Thanks

Hey! There is no maximum time/duration limit to a live input. We do require that you retry RTMP connections if the TCP connection that powers it gets disconnected. Clients like OBS does automatically reconnect if this happens.

On a separate note, there is currently a bug that we’re investigating that may cause the live input to show “connected” without a new video created for a small number of users. If you share your live input ID (here or at [email protected]) I can share that information with the team.
