Getting Started with Live-to-VOD Content Delivery in AWS Elemental MediaPackage

This Getting Started tutorial shows you how to use the AWS Elemental MediaPackage console to create a live-to-VOD (video on demand) asset and make it available for playback.

To deliver live-to-VOD content, you do these three main things:

  • Ingest a live HLS content stream into MediaPackage

  • Extract a VOD asset from the stream

  • Make the asset available for playback


    You're not required to use MediaPackage to deliver your live-to-VOD asset to viewers. This tutorial is meant as an illustration of how you can use MediaPackage to complete the live-to-VOD workflow.

The following sections are a guided tutorial for becoming familiar with these three things and other supporting actions.
