When attempting to start live streaming a meeting via the API, I occasionally encounter a stalled condition in which the Zoom meeting reports the message “Preparing” and never starts streaming:
Which App Type (OAuth / Chatbot / JWT / Webhook)?
How To Reproduce (If applicable)
Issue only happens occasionally, in a process like this:
- Start the meeting
- Make an API call to update meeting details with stream url and stream key
- Make an API call to start streaming the meeting
Occasionally the meeting hangs, reports “Preparing” and does not start streaming. Neither of the API calls return an error. Is there any way to prevent this?
