Using AWS Elemental MediaConvert to create outputs with only audio

You can use AWS Elemental MediaConvert to create outputs that contain only audio, without video. With audio-only outputs, MediaConvert supports a more limited number of codec and container combinations for input and output files.

Note

The restrictions and procedures in this chapter apply to outputs that don't have video in the container. This includes the following:

  • Outputs in File output groups that don't have video included

  • Streaming HLS output groups that contain only audio outputs

When you set up streaming output packages that contain audio, video, and captions, you create separate outputs for each element inside the output package. These are not audio-only outputs as described in this chapter. For more information about setting up streaming outputs, see Creating outputs in ABR streaming output groups.
