Fields for the output destination - AWS Elemental MediaLive

Fields for the output destination

The following fields configure the location and names of the RTMP output files (the destination).

  • OutputRTMP destination sections

To specify the destination for the output

  1. When you discussed your requirements with the operator of the RTMP server, you should have obtained the following information:

    • The protocol for MediaLive to use—RTMP or RTMPS.

    • IP address.

    • Port number.

    • Application name. Also called app name.

    • Stream name. Also called application instance or app instance or stream key.

      The operator might give you the application name and stream name as separate pieces of data. Or they might give you a complete path in the format string/string. In this case, the first string is the application name and the second string is the stream name.

    • The user name and password to access the server, if the downstream system requires authenticated requests.

    Here is an example of the information that the operator will give you:

    rtmp://203.0.113.17:80/xyz/ywq7b

    Where xyz is the application name, and ywq7b is the stream name.

  2. Enter the different portions of the destination in the appropriate fields.

    Portion of the destination URL Field
    protocol, IP address, port, application name The two URL fields in the RTMP destination section. (Note that these fields are on the Output page, not the Output group page.)

    For example:

    rtmp://203.0.113.17:80/xyz

    Specify two destinations when the channel is set up as a Channel class, or one destination when it is set up as a single-pipeline channel.

    Stream name The two Stream name fields in the RTMP outputs section.

    For example:

    ywq7b
  3. Complete the Credentials section, if the server the downstream system provided you with a user name and password. For the password, enter the name of the password stored on the AWS Systems Manager Parameter Store. Don't enter the password itself.
