Passing Through SCTE-35 Markers from Your Input

You can include time_signal SCTE-35 markers from your input in any output that has a transport stream container. These outputs might be in an HLS package, or they might be standalone files wrapped in an MPEG2 transport stream (M2TS) container.

To pass through SCTE-35 markers from the input to an output (console)

  1. Open the MediaConvert console at

  2. Choose Create job.

  3. Set up your input, output groups, and outputs for video and audio, as described in Setting Up a Job in AWS Elemental MediaConvert and Structuring Complex Jobs in AWS Elemental MediaConvert.

  4. Choose an output under either File group or Apple HLS.

  5. Under Container settings (for File group outputs) or Transport stream settings (for Apple HLS outputs), find SCTE-35 source, and then choose Passthrough.

  6. Optionally, under SCTE-35 PID, enter a different value from the default 500.

    A PID, or packet identifier, is an identifier for a set of data in an MPEG-2 transport stream container. PIDs are used by downstream systems and players to locate specific information in the container.

  7. If your output is in an Apple HLS, optionally set up the job to include ad markers in the manifest. For more information, see Including SCTE-35 Information in Your HLS Manifest.
