What is AWS Elemental MediaPackage?


This user guide is intended for creating MediaPackage resources in MediaPackage Version 2 (v2) starting from May 2023. To get started with MediaPackage v2, create your MediaPackage resources. There isn't an automated process to migrate your resources from MediaPackage v1 to MediaPackage v2.

The names of the entities that you use to access your MediaPackage resources, like URLs and ARNs, all include "mediapackagev2", to distinguish from the prior version. If you used MediaPackage prior to this release, you can't use the MediaPackage v2 AWS CLI or the MediaPackage v2 API to access any MediaPackage v1 resources.

If you created resources in MediaPackage v1, use video on demand (VOD) workflows, and aren't looking to migrate to MediaPackage v2 yet, see the AWS Elemental MediaPackage v1 User Guide.

AWS Elemental MediaPackage (MediaPackage) is a just-in-time video packaging and origination service that runs in the AWS Cloud. With MediaPackage, you can deliver highly secure, scalable, and reliable video streams to a wide variety of playback devices and content delivery networks (CDNs).

MediaPackage offers a broadcast-grade viewing experience for viewers, while allowing you the flexibility to control and protect your content. Additionally, the built-in resiliency and scalability of MediaPackage means that you have the right amount of resources at the right time, with no manual intervention required.
