Step 2: Complete the fields on the console

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 URL Location of the Field Example
    protocol URL in HLS group destinations section http://
    domain URL in HLS group destinations section 203.0.113.55
    path URL in HLS group destinations section /sports/delivery/

    Always terminate with a slash

    baseFilename URL in HLS group destinations section curling

    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. If the downstream system requires user authentication from MediaLive, in each HLS group destination section, complete the Credentials section. Enter a user name and a password provided by the downstream system. For the password, enter the name of the password stored on the AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store. Don't enter the password itself. For more information, see Requirements for AWS Systems Manager—creating password parameters in parameter store .

  3. In the CDN settings section, choose the option that the downstream system told you to use—Akamai, PUT, or WebDAV.

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