Using SnapStream: the Web Interface

Welcome to SnapStream! To starting using your SnapStream TV appliance, connect to the SnapStream Web Interface. This interface is like a website hosted by The SnapStream TV Appliance itself. In a SnapStream cluster, the web interface will be hosted on the master node.

 To access the web interface, enter the name or IP address of your SnapStream system (or the master node, if you have more than one) into the address bar of any web browser. You will be prompted to log in to SnapStream.





Log in with the username and password provided on hard-copy documentation with your server. The default credentials will have permission to access to all of the web interface, including system settings. For information on creating user accounts with limited permissions, see the Users and Groups page.
