What Happens at Runtime

When you start the channel, MediaLive takes a short time to get the channel ready to run.

As soon as the channel is ready, MediaLive looks at the schedule to determine if there is an input switch with a start time that is now or that is overdue:

  • If it finds this action, it switches to that input and starts ingesting.

  • If it does not find this action, it starts ingesting the first input attachment listed in the channel.
