"Stream configurations" are the way to control the properties and characteristics of streams. When creating a stream you can specify which of your stream configurations to use, or you can specify the system level configuration which has the most common features enabled. Options such as defining transcoding settings, including which video representations to transcode, enabling RTMP push or pull and including a watermark are some of the stream features.
The stream manager is your go-to section in the console to start and stop your live streams, monitor their performance and find advanced details for each stream such as the transcoding status, playlists and multi-streaming URLs.
