/api/instance/info

Generic enformation about the instance.

Method: GET

Authentication: no

Parameters: none

Response: Returns a JSON object containing the name, domain, version, email, and whether registration is open. Email will be null if not specified.

Example: {name: "Example Instance", domain: "example.com", registration: false, version: 0.7, email: null}

/api/instance/config

Configuration of the instance relating to media

Method: GET

Authentication: no

Parameters: none

Response: JSON object containing the port and ping_timeout for RTMP, whether clustering is enabled, public and private play endpoints, and whether adaptive livestreaming and VOD recording are enabled.

Example:

{
	rtmp: {
		cluster: false,
		port: 1935,
		ping_timeout: 60
	},
	media: {
		vods: false,
		publicEndpoint: 'live',
		privateEndpoint: 'stream',
		adaptive: true
	}
}

Public and private endpoints work like this, from the above example:

stream to: rtmp://example.com/stream

Response: Returns an array of JSON objects containing the username and title of each stream. Returns an empty array if no one is streaming. Returns {"error":"error reason"} in the event of an error. Will attempt to correct malformed requests to default values.

/api/users/all
