Output audio requirements for each MXF profile - MediaConvert

Output audio requirements for each MXF profile

This table shows the requirements for how you set up your output audio tracks in your AWS Elemental MediaConvert job. The requirements are different for each MXF profile that you choose.

Note

If you don't include any audio tracks in your output, then you must make sure that there is no audio at all in your job settings.

  • In your JSON job specification, this means removing the AudioDescriptions object entirely.

  • In the console, this means that you must delete the Audio 1 tab that MediaConvert inserts for you by default. Delete it by choosing it, and then choosing Remove audio in the upper right of the Encoding settings section.
