Working with Endpoints in AWS Elemental MediaPackage

An endpoint defines a single delivery point of a channel. The endpoint holds all the information that is needed for AWS Elemental MediaPackage to integrate with a player or content distribution network (CDN) such as Amazon CloudFront. Configure the endpoint to output content in one of the available stream formats:

  • Apple HLS – packages content to Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)

  • Microsoft Smooth – packages content for Microsoft Smooth Streaming players

  • CMAF – packages content to devices that support Apple HLS fragmented MP4 (fMP4)

  • DASH-ISO – packages content for the DASH-ISO ABR streaming protocol

Additionally, the endpoint holds information about digital rights management (DRM) and encryption integration, stream bit rate presentation order, and more.
