Deploying Ant Media Server on AWS for Live Streaming to Over 50,000 Viewers

First off, the AWS Streaming Service Wizard is a game-changer for live streaming experiences, whether you are setting up, hosting, managing, or simply participating. It lets you create a streaming app within minutes by requiring only two inputs which are the total number of “publishers” (i.e., the users who will be sharing the stream through additional channels) and the total number of “viewers” expected on the stream.

With these two input figures, AWS Streaming Service Wizard builds and deploys an intuitive live-streaming solution accessible from anywhere around the world. Without further delay, let’s get into the simple and easy-to-remember steps that help you set up a cluster streaming service using AWS Streaming Service Wizard!

Step-by-Step Instructions To Build Live Streaming Service

  1. Go to the AWS Streaming Service Wizard webpage.
  2. Fill in the two required fields about expected viewers and publishers.
  3. Optional Step – Click on the “Generate Free Subdomain and SSL Certificate” button to generate a free subdomain that comes with the Let’s Encrypt certificate.
  4. Finish the setup by clicking on “Submit”.
  5. The cluster configuration summary will pop up in the form of a table. It will show the CloudFormation template that you can download and upload to the AWS CloudFormation service manually or simply click on “Open in CF” to save time.
  6. After you log in to the AWS Console which appears after clicking on “Open in CF”, you will see a “Create stack” dialogue screen.
  7. Fill in the three required fields in the dialogue screen (Stack NameKeyname, and (Optional) LoadBalancerCertificateArn) and click next to begin CloudFormation installation.

The AWS Streaming Service Wizard generates an AWS CloudFormation template to create an Ant Media Server cluster for your streaming requirements. Every streaming asset in the background CloudFormation Template and AWS Console is under the control of the stream operator, i.e., you.
