Determining the Number of Captions Selectors Needed - AWS Elemental Live

This is version 2.18 of the AWS Elemental Live documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Live and AWS Elemental Statmux Documentation.

Determining the Number of Captions Selectors Needed

To determine the number of captions selectors you need to created in the event, follow these rules:

  • Embedded Passthrough – Create only one captions selector. With this scenario, all languages are automatically extracted and are automatically included in the output.

  • Embedded In, Other Out – If you are setting up embedded-to-other, create one captions selector for each language that you want to include in the output, to a maximum of four selectors.

  • A combination of Embedded passthrough and Embedded conversion – If you are setting up embedded passthrough in some outputs and embedded-to-other in other outputs, create one captions selector for each language that you want to include in the output, to a maximum of four selectors. Do not worry about a selector for the embedded passthrough output. AWS Elemental Live will extract all the languages for that output, even though no selector exists to explicitly specify this action.
