Channel Input—RTMP Push Input

Follow these guidelines to verify that the input is set up correctly.

To verify the setup of the input

  1. Look at the Input destinations section. It shows the two locations on MediaLive that the upstream system will push the source to when the channel is running. These locations were automatically generated when you created the input:

    • If the channel is set up as a standard channel, two locations are generated.

    • If the channel is set up as a single-pipeline channel, one location is generated.

    Each location consists of an address portion that was automatically generated, appended by a folder that you specified when you created the input.

    For example, for an RTMP Public push input:

    rtmp://203.0.113.111:1935/movies/classic

    rtmp://203.0.113.22:1935/movies/classic

    For example, for an RTMP VPC push input:

    rtmp://10.99.20.40:1935

    rtmp://192.0.2.131:1935

  2. Look again at the Input destinations section.

    • If the section has an Input security group with a number beside it, then the input is an RTMP Public input that has a MediaLive security group. The input is correctly set up and you can continue.

    • If the section has an Input security group without a number beside it, then the input is an RTMP Public input that is missing a MediaLive input security group. This input isn't correctly set up. Typically, this situation occurs if, for example, you have input A attached to input security group B and then you delete B. Input A is no longer useable. You must recreate the input and attach an input security group to it before you can associate it with a channel that you are creating.

    • If the section doesn't have an Input security group, then the input is an RTMP VPC push input. The input is correctly set up and you can continue.
