Creating Live-to-VOD Assets with AWS Elemental MediaPackage

A live-to-VOD (video on demand) asset is a portion of a live stream that's been extracted and saved for playback later. For example, you might save clips from a game for a highlight reel, or a clip of a broadcast show to use later in advertisements for the show.

To create a live-to-VOD asset in MediaPackage, create a harvest job resource. The harvest job is a request that you create for MediaPackage to extract a portion of a live stream and save the clip as a live-to-VOD asset in an Amazon S3 bucket. The job runs once, then MediaPackage keeps a record of it on your account for 90 days. This record is for reference purposes only. You can't delete or modify it.


To create live-to-VOD assets, you must allow MediaPackage to access and save to an Amazon S3 bucket. For instructions, see Allowing AWS Elemental MediaPackage to Access Amazon S3.
