Amazon Elastic Transcoder
Developer Guide (API Version 2012-09-25)

System Presets

The value of the Id object for the preset that you want to use for a job. The preset determines the audio, video, and thumbnail settings that Elastic Transcoder uses for transcoding. To use a preset that you created, specify the preset ID that Elastic Transcoder returned in the response when you created the preset.

Note

If you created any presets before AAC profiles were added, Elastic Transcoder will use the AAC-LC profile for those presets.

To use one of the system presets that are included with Elastic Transcoder, use the following IDs. (You can also get these IDs using List Presets.)
