Getting Started

Basic usage

Radium runs in a Docker container, simply modify and run the docker command.

# Basic Docker Container
$ docker run -d --name=radium -p 3000:3000 -e BASE_URL=https://radium.example.com zibbp/radium:latest

Deploy to Heroku



The base url is required for basic functionality.

If not using a reverse proxy and a domain, the IP and PORT need to be supplied.

# Add the following environment variable
-e BASE_URL=https://radium.example.com


# Add the following environment variable

The HLS url can be changed via an environment variable or within the application when running. To set a permanent url, pass the environment variable HLS_URL through.

# Add the following environment variable
-e HLS_URL=https://domain.com/stream.m3u8

If the HLS_URL variable is not passed through, a default demo file will play.

Visit the documentation for generating HLS media.

Admin Token

The admin token is automatically generated and logged to the console whenever started, but a custom one can be passed through.

# Add the following environment variable
-e ADMIN_TOKEN=secret123

Visit the documentation for token usage.
