After you have designed the output names and destination paths, you can set up the HLS output group.

The following fields configure the location and names of the HLS media and manifest files (the destination).

  • Output group – HLS group destination section

  • Output group – HLS settings – CDN section

  • Output group – Location – Directory structure

  • Output group – Location – Segments per subdirectory

  • HLS outputs – Output settings – Name modifier

  • HLS outputs – Output settings – Segment modifier

To set the destination for most downstream systems

  1. Complete the URL fields in the HLS group destinations section. Specify two destinations if the channel is set up as a standard channel, or one destination if it is set up as a single-pipeline channel.

    Portion of the destination path Location of the Field Description
    protocol URL in HLS group destinations section mediastoressl://
    domain URL in HLS group destinations section The data endpoint
    path URL in HLS group destinations section The optional path of folders

    Always terminate with a slash

    baseFilename URL in HLS group destinations section Required

    Don't terminate the baseFilename with a slash.

    modifier Name modifier in each HLS outputs section Required

    Make sure the modifiers are unique across all outputs in the output group

    segmentModifier Segment modifier in each HLS outputs section Optional

    Keep in mind that this field exists for each output.

  2. Leave the Credentials section blank in both the HLS group destinations sections. MediaLive has permission to write to the MediaStore container via the trusted entity. Someone in your organization should have already set up these permissions. For more information, see Reference: summary of requirements for the MediaLive trusted entity.

  3. In the CDN settings section, choose Hls media store.

  4. If the MediaStore user gave you values to configure the connection, enter those values in the fields in the CDN settings section.
