The newest version of the THEOlive API makes it possible to edit the auto-stop settings of your channel. Previously, a channel would always stop automatically when no ingest was received for 1 hour. From today onwards, you can use the
ingestTimeout property on channel create and update to set this value based on your preferences.
This optional parameter expects the number of seconds after which the channel should stop automatically when no ingest is received. By default, this value will be set to
3600. When the channel should never stop automatically, you can pass
0 as value.
Per channel start it is possible to overwrite the value specifically for the channel run that's going to start. Just pass
ingestTimeout as part of the request body.
