Customizing the paths inside HLS manifests - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Customizing the paths inside HLS manifests

This section applies only to HLS outputs. Inside the HLS main manifest, there are paths to each child manifest. Inside each child manifest, there are paths to the media files for that manifest.

You can optionally change the syntax of these paths. Typically, you only need to change the syntax if the downstream system has special path requirements. Akamai CDNs usually require you to change the syntax.

Don't set up custom paths if the downstream system is MediaPackage. MediaPackage works with the default paths.


The information in this section on HLS manifests assumes that you are familiar with the general steps for creating a channel, as described in Creating a channel from scratch.

The key fields in the console that relate to this feature are in the Location grouping of the HLS output group section on the Create channel page. To review the step where you complete these fields, see Procedure to create an HLS output group.
