Step 7: Create an HLS output group

Once you have set up the input, you continue with the channel creation by creating an output group. In this tutorial, you set up an HLS output group.

To create an output group

  1. On the Create channel page, in the Output groups section, choose Add.

  2. In the Add output group section, choose HLS, and then choose Confirm.

  3. In the HLS group destination A section, for URL, enter the first input URL that AWS Elemental MediaPackage created for you in Step 2: Set up the downstream system. For example, https://39fuo4.mediapackage.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/in/v1/88dpie/channel.

  4. For Credentials:

    • For Username, enter the user name that corresponds to this URL. For example, ue739wuty.

    • For Password, choose Create parameter. For Name, enter DestinationA-MyHLS. For Password, enter the password that corresponds to the URL. For example, due484u.

  5. Choose Create parameter.

    You have created a parameter called DestinationA-MyHLS that holds the password due484u. The parameter is stored in the AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store. For more information, see About the feature for creating password parameters.

  6. For HLS group destination B, for URL, enter the second input URL that AWS Elemental MediaPackage created for you in Step 2: Set up the downstream system. For example, https://mgu654.mediapackage.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/in/v1/xmm9s/channel.

  7. For Credentials:

    • For Username, enter the user name that corresponds to this URL. For example, 883hdux.

    • For Password, choose Create parameter. For Name, enter DestinationB-MyHLS. For Password, enter the password that corresponds to the URL. For example, 634hjik.

  8. Choose Create parameter.

    You have created a parameter called DestinationB-MyHLS that holds the password 634hjik. The parameter is stored in the AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store.

  9. In the HLS settings section, for Name, enter MyHLS.

  10. For CDN settings, choose Hls webdav. This is the connection that AWS Elemental MediaPackage (the downstream system for the channel output) uses.

    Leave the defaults for all the other CDN settings fields.

  11. For all other fields in this pane, keep the default values.
