Canceling an Elastic Transcoder Job

You can cancel a job that still has a status of Submitted, which means that Elastic Transcoder hasn't started to transcode your file. The following procedure explains how to cancel a job using the Elastic Transcoder console.

To cancel a job using the API, pause the corresponding pipeline so Elastic Transcoder doesn't start processing the job, list jobs that have a status of Submitted to get the applicable job ID, then cancel the job using the job ID to identify which job you want to cancel. For more information, see:
