Fields for the video, audio, and captions streams (encodes)

The following fields relate to the encoding of the video, audio, and captions streams (encodes) in the output.

  • Stream settings section

By default, the output is set up with one video encode and one audio encode. The output in an Archive group can contain one video encode, one or more audio encodes, and zero or more captions encodes.

To set up the encodes

  1. Decide if you need to create more encodes for this output, based on the workflow that you planned.

  2. Choose the appropriate Add button or Delete button to set up the output with the encodes—video, audio, and captions—that you planned for this output.

    For example, in one output you might want one video asset and two audio assets, in another output you might want one captions asset for French captions, and in a third output you might want one captions asset for Spanish captions. For information about why you would set up like this (for example, with an output that contains only one captions asset), see Examples of channel designs.

  3. Complete the fields in each type of encode.
