Could not get orchestrator orch=https://192.17.1.200:8935 err=rpc error: code = Unknown desc = insufficient sender reserve

Hi guys,
I’m new for livepeer, I try to set an orchestrator at loacl address 192.17.1.200, it’s registered and active. I try to setup an broadcaster at a local network, which can access 192.17.1.200, I use the below command to connect the orchestrator,
The title error occurs, who can tell me what happened and why, many thanks

Thank you for reporting this.

The Broadcaster needs to fund their account with some ETH, to pay to Orchestrators for doing Transcoding work.

I can see from your logs that your Deposit and your Reserve are both 0, which is why you’re seeing the insufficient sender reserve error.

You can deposit ETH as a Broadcaster via livepeer_cli.

Hi, thanks. I got it. At first I can’t deposit successfully due to network. I have deposited ETH, but I still cant’ transcode.

Orchestrator is active and it is in OrchestratorPool, Broadcaster status is below. but there is no RegisteredTranscoders.

from the status, can the transcoder work?
BTW I am confused how livepeer to choose a proper transcoder? thanks.

I try it step by step ref to the guide. wow, it’s hard for me to understand livepeer, hahaha.
many thanks.

Hi, thank you for help. I get a step further to run livepeer.
