Hello all.

Totally new to Wowza, and completely lost. So would really appreciate your help in getting my head wrapped around this

Let's say that I wanted to set up a site like Twitch.TV (I don't really, but we'll use it as a good analogy for what I'm trying to do). So people will live stream to my server (for example, by using: https://obsproject.com/), and other people can then view these streams.

I would need to give them (new streamers) some sort of stream ID and some sort of identifier (password?) when they click the "I want to stream!" button, so that they can start streaming. But I have to idea how to get Wowza to generate these programmatically (i.e. without going into the console). Isn't there an API I can use? What am I missing here?
