Creating a UDP Output Group

Follow these steps if, when you were planning the channel, you determined that you want to include a UDP output group.

To create a UDP output group

  1. On the Create channel page, in the Output groups section, choose Add. The Add output group section appears.

  2. Choose UDP, and then choose Confirm. More sections appear.

  3. Complete the fields in each section.

  4. After you enter all the information for one output group, you can optionally create another output group. Otherwise, go to the next step.

UDP Settings

  • Enter a name for the output group. For example, Sports Game 10122017 ABR or tvchannel59.

  • Optionally change the value of Input loss action.

  • Complete the ID3 fields if applicable.

UDP Destinations

Specify the URLs for two destinations (A and B). You must specify two destinations because MediaLive works in redundant mode for outputs: it requires two destinations. The URLs must use the RTP or UDP protocol and must include a port number.

If FEC is enabled (this field is in the Output pane, not the Output group pane), then leave space between the port numbers for the two destinations. For example, if one destination is rtp://192.0.2.0:5000, assume that FEC also uses port 5002 and 5004. So the lowest possible port number for the other destination is 5005: rtp://192.0.2.230:5005.

UDP Outputs

This section contains fields that relate to the encoding of the video, audio, and captions in the output, and that relate to the packaging and delivery of the output.

If you want more than one output in this output group, choose Add output. An Output line is added for each output. Setup of the individual outputs is described in Step 6: Create Outputs.
