Previewing a manifest - AWS Elemental MediaPackage

Previewing a manifest

Preview an endpoint's manifest to ensure that MediaPackage is receiving the content stream and can package it. The preview is helpful for avoiding playback failures after the endpoint is published and for troubleshooting later if there are any playback issues.

You can use the MediaPackage console to preview playback from the endpoint.

To preview an endpoint's playback
  1. Access the channel that the endpoint is associated with, as described in Viewing channel details.

  2. Under Origin endpoints, select the endpoint that you want to preview.

  3. To preview playback, do one of the following:

    • Choose Preview to play content with the embedded player.

    • Choose QR code to view and scan the QR code for playback on a compatible device.
