Getting bitrate of a transocoded stream - MediaProvider
we're developing a custom implementation of IMediaListProvider for JWPlayer. How can we access to the audio + video bitrate of a transcoded stream (to set the system-bitrate attribute) ? From IMediaStream or ILiveStreamTranscoder instances, other ?
It is possible to automatically generate a complete smil file containing system-bitrate etc from a number of transcoded streams. The
following article has examples of how to do this. Essentially you enter something like the following in your browser while the transcoded streams are active
and this will display the smil contents that you can then save to your [install-dir]/contents/ directory as yourstream.smil (or whatever you wish to call it) and it will include system-bitrate and other specific parameters that should ensure that you have a well-defined smil file. Please refer to the article linked for specific settings.
