You can use the software as is without setting up any server simply because a demo server comes with it, due to the fact that this can be easily exusted we recommend you register at firebase.com
for a free data channel which you can use in setting up the livestream server for your site. Select your server type firebase, input data channel url (like 'https://livestreaming-1557a.firebaseio.com/')
which should be given to you by firebase upon registration, free data channel is enough for most normal websites.
But if you are looking into a high traffic website, it is advise you buy a mediaserver like Kurento if you understand what you are doing and set it up or contact us
