The function of ingesting domain name is to provide Tencent-cloud with the url of a streaming server to receive the Live video stream of the client (such as OBS live client). The function of streaming domain name is to provide Tencent cloud with the url of a streaming server, which is used for users watching Live broadcast to access Live broadcast resources.
After having a domain name, you can add configuration through the domain name management page of Tencent-cloud Live console.

The slice list in m3u8 also exists under the same domain name as m3u8, but Tencent console cannot view the slice list. There is a difference with Tencent-cloud.
