I have read the docs on the Transcoder Add-on, but I’m confused about one thing.
I’ve got a .stream file defined to allow me to pull a stream from an IP camera. This works fine. I need now to deliver the stream as received as well as a couple of smaller, lower bitrate versions. I’ve got my transcode.xml file defined and have enabled transcoder in my Application.xml.
What I am not clear on is how to refer to my transcoded streams. Assuming that my stream file is named “camera1.stream”, if my transrate.xml contains:
how would I refer to this transcoder output? Would it be “camera1.stream_720p”? Or, if my transrate.xml file also contains:
could I access the output as “ngrp:camera1.stream_all”? As you might guess, this is my first time going live with the Transcoder.
EDIT: More information…
I was thinking that if my stream file is named “camera.stream” I might be able to access the 720p version by referencing “camera.stream_720p”, but that is not the case. JWPlayer complains of no such stream. Trying to load “ngrp:camera.stream” works just fine. “ngrp:camera.stream_all” doesn’t. Pointers, please?
