AWS Elemental MediaConvert CreateJob Example Using the AWS CLI

To create a transcoding job using the AWS CLI:

  1. Use describe-endpoints to get your account endpoint and set your region. In this example, the region is set to ap-northeast-3:

    aws mediaconvert describe-endpoints --region ap-northeast-3
  2. Use the --endpoint-url option to send your request to your account endpoint:

    aws --endpoint-url https://abcd1234.mediaconvert.region-name-1.amazonaws.com --region region-name-1 mediaconvert create-job --cli-input-json file://~/job.json

    In the preceding example, job.json specifies your transcoding job settings. You can use the MediaConvert console to generate the JSON job specification. For more information and sample job specifications, see Creating Your Job Specification.
