Editing multiplexes, programs, and channels - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Editing multiplexes, programs, and channels

You can edit a multiplex, the programs in a multiplex, and the channels in a multiplex. There are specific rules that are based on the state (running or idle) of the item that you want to work with, as described in this section.

Editing a multiplex

There are very few restrictions on your ability to edit a multiplex. You can edit a multiplex when these situations apply:

  • While the multiplex is idle or running, unless you want to change the Maximum Video Buffer Delay field. To change that field, the multiplex must be idle.

  • While the channels in the multiplex programs are idle or running.

  • While MediaLive is in the process of adding programs that you just created.

To edit a multiplex

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

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Multiplexes, and then choose the multiplex that you want to edit.

  3. On the Details pane, choose Multiplex actions, and then choose Edit.

  4. Make the changes that you want, and then choose Save changes.

Editing a program

You can edit a program at any time, including when the multiplex if running or when the associated channel is running.

To edit a program
