Create the inputs

This section is a supplement to the information in Working with inputs in AWS Elemental MediaLive. It provides information that applies specifically to creating inputs for use in a channel that contains multiple input attachments.

Follow the steps in Creating an inputfor creating a channel, with the following notes.

  • Create the inputs that you identified in the previous steps in this section.

  • Make sure that you set up each input as the correct type (static live, static file, or dynamic file).

    There are no special steps for creating a static live input or static file input.

    To create a dynamic input, you must enter a variable in the URL for the file source. When this variable is present, MediaLive recognizes the input as a dynamic input. For more information, see Dynamic inputs.
