Replace Dynamic Playlist - 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.

Replace Dynamic Playlist

In the specified event (which must be currently running), remove all non-Active inputs from the dynamic playlist and append the specified file input or inputs. After this command, only the Active input remains from the original dynamic playlist; the rest of the dynamic playlist consists of new inputs.

The dynamic playlist can only consist of file inputs; if you want to add live inputs or live and file inputs, use Add Dynamic Playlist Inputs.

There is no maximum to the number of inputs that can be added using this command, and there is no maximum to the number inputs that result in the event. For example, you can replace the 15 inputs currently in the event with 900 new inputs. Compare this lack of restrictions to the restrictions that apply with Add Dynamic Playlist Inputs.

You can use Replace Dynamic Playlist to clear the dynamic playlist: create a Body consisting of an empty inputs element. **file only
