Updating a MediaLive device - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Updating a MediaLive device

MediaLive devices automatically install updates when they are powered on and the MediaLive channels using the device are stopped. However, if your workflow prevents you from stopping your MediaLive channels on a regular basis, you can manually start a maintenance window to update your device.

To start a maintenance window for a device

  1. Open the MediaLive console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/medialive/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Devices.

  3. In Input devices, go to the card for the MediaLive device that you want to update and choose the link.

  4. On the details page for the device, choose Start maintenance.

  5. If the device is streaming, you’ll be asked to confirm you want to start a maintenance window for the device. All MediaLive channels that use the device will experience a brief loss of input from the device during the maintenance. Choose Start.

  6. Device maintenance will start. The device has a window of up to two hours to install updates. If the device was streaming prior to the maintenance, it will resume streaming when the software is fully installed.
