New Endpoint Fields

When you're creating an endpoint, do not put sensitive identifying information like customer account numbers into free-form fields such as the Name field. This includes when you work with AWS Elemental MediaPackage using the console, REST API, AWS CLI, or AWS SDKs. Any data that you enter into MediaPackage might get picked up for inclusion in diagnostic logs or Amazon CloudWatch Events.

  1. For ID, type a name that describes the endpoint. The ID is the primary identifier for the endpoint, and must be unique for your account in the region.

  2. (Optional) For Description, type any descriptive text that helps you to identify the endpoint later.

  3. For Manifest name, type a short string that will be appended to the end of the endpoint URL. The manifest name helps to create a unique path to this endpoint.

  4. (Optional) To allow time-shifted playback (start-over and catch-up TV), select Startover window and type the maximum amount of time that viewers can seek back on content. For more information about implementing start-over and catch-up TV, see Time-shifted Viewing Reference in AWS Elemental MediaPackage.

  5. (Optional) To delay when content is available to players, type the duration (in seconds) for the delay in Time delay. The minimum time is five seconds. The maximum time is 86,400 seconds (24 hours).

    Use time delay to redefine the live point and make content available at a time that equals "now" minus the delay specified. With a 60-second time delay, content that AWS Elemental MediaPackage receives at 12:20 isn't available until 12:21. Requests for playback at 12:20 are served with content from 12:19. Likewise, if you're serving content across time zones, you can set a time delay equal to the time zone difference to make content available at, for example, 8:00 local time.

    When you use time delay in conjunction with a startover window, the time delay duration must be less than the startover window duration.
