Step 6: Set up the video encode - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Step 6: Set up the video encode

The output section for every type of output group contains a Stream settings section. In this section, you create encodes for the video, audio (if applicable), and captions (if applicable) in the output and specify the details of how you want these assets encoded.

The following procedure describes how to set up a video encode and assumes that you have created the output that will hold the video. The fields for a video encode are identical for all output group types. For example, the fields for video for an HLS group are identical to those for a UDP group.

To set up the video encodes in most output types

  1. On the Create channel page, find the output group that you created.

  2. Under that output group, find the output (or the first output) where you want to set up a video encode.

  3. Choose the link for the video encode.

  4. For Codec settings, choose the codec to use for this output. More fields appear.

  5. Complete each field as appropriate. For details about a field, choose the Info link next to the field.

  6. Continue setting up the audio encodes, video encodes, and captions encodes for all outputs in all output groups. When you finish with the encodes for all outputs, go to save the channel.

To set up the video encodes in the Frame Capture output type

  1. On the Create channel page, find the output group that you created.

  2. Under that output group, find the output and choose the link for the video encode.

  3. Complete each field as appropriate. For details about a field, choose the Info link next to the field.

  4. When you are ready, go to save the channel.
