CreateMediaPipelineKinesisVideoStreamPool - Amazon Chime SDK


Creates an Amazon Kinesis Video Stream pool for use with media stream pipelines.


If a meeting uses an opt-in Region as its MediaRegion, the KVS stream must be in that same Region. For example, if a meeting uses the af-south-1 Region, the KVS stream must also be in af-south-1. However, if the meeting uses a Region that AWS turns on by default, the KVS stream can be in any available Region, including an opt-in Region. For example, if the meeting uses ca-central-1, the KVS stream can be in eu-west-2, us-east-1, af-south-1, or any other Region that the Amazon Chime SDK supports.

To learn which AWS Region a meeting uses, call the GetMeeting API and use the MediaRegion parameter from the response.

For more information about opt-in Regions, refer to Available Regions in the Amazon Chime SDK Developer Guide, and Specify which AWS Regions your account can use, in the AWS Account Management Reference Guide.
