This is the last Rinkeby only go-livepeer release before the Streamflow upgrade on mainnet. The next release will be mainnet compatible.

Existing transcoders should check out the upgrade guide to make sure that they are prepared to run mainnet compatible nodes.

Breaking Changes

If you are upgrading from a previous release, you will need to delete your DB file prior to upgrading. The DB file can be found at <DATA_DIR>/<NETWORK_NAME>/lp.sqlite3. By default the DB file is located at ~/.lpData/rinkeby/lp.sqlite3.

  • The stake column has been added to the orchestrators table in the DB (#1216)


  • Added support for caching the stake of active orchestrators when running as a broadcaster (#1216)
  • Added error logging when a user requests LPT from the Rinkeby faucet more than once in an hour (#1251)
  • Updated the /setOrchestratorConfig endpoint to not update the on-chain reward cut and fee share if the values would be unchanged (#1230)
  • Updated transaction signing to use EIP-155 by default (#1266)
  • Updated the CLI wizard to always print the list of preset video profiles in the same order (#1267)
  • Added support for passing in the password for an ETH account via text file (#1268)
  • Added support for passing in an orchestrator's shared secret (used by transcoders for authentication) via text file (#1275)
  • Enable custom video profiles for broadcasters (#1242)
  • Updated the CLI wizard to properly format LPT/ETH balances (#1285)
