Requirements for pipeline locking - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Requirements for pipeline locking

Channel requirements

The channel must be a standard channel with only one input attached. It doesn't work in a channel with multiple inputs where your implement input switching.

Output requirements

Pipeline locking works only with the following types of output groups:

  • HLS

  • MediaPackage

  • Microsoft Smooth

  • UDP

The channel can contain output groups other than the supported ones. MediaLive will not perform pipeline locking on those output groups. This means that there is no guarantee that the two pipelines will be frame-accurate with each other.
