URL Pull (HLS) input configuration - Live Streaming on AWS with Amazon S3

URL Pull (HLS) input configuration

URL Pull provides the option to ingest an HLS stream over HTTP or HTTPS. The following parameters are required to configure the solution to ingest an HLS stream:

  • Solution Input Type: URL_PULL

  • Source URL: The HTTP(s) link to the HLS stream manifest file. The default value is a demo stream from AWS.

  • Source Username: Only required if you have basic authentication setup on your source HLS stream.

  • Source Password: Only required if you have basic authentication setup on your source HLS stream.

  • Encoding Profile: Select the profile that best matches your source resolution.

  • Start MediaLive Channel: If your device is ready to stream, select true. Otherwise, select false—you can start the MediaLive channel through the AWS console when you’re ready to stream.

Note
