To show you the difference between big mac prices in different countries, these are how it looks like.

Comparison pricing between live streaming vendors.
Most live streaming services use minutes of views as their price unit. We're doing things differently. If they charge you $xx per minute view, they are charging you for the highest video resolution and bandwidth cost.
But in developing countries where most people use cheap phones with low-quality screens, they'll watch lower-resolution videos to save on internet data. That's why it's fair to charge our service using bandwidth usage. This way, you only pay for what you use.
inLive is in the mission to make the video technology accessible for everyone. We start by providing an affordable self service video infrastructure and tools for developers to build their next video based application.

Once you've logged in, you'll be taken to your dashboard. We call it "Studio". From there, you can click "Settings" in the side menu to set up your live stream API key.
