I have a question about how transcoding time accrues for a live stream. I am aware that the section “Stream Processing Time” on the Usage page has a column “Hours Used” for a live stream that shows how much transcoding time is being used. I’ve noticed however that the transcoding time continues to accrue for a started live stream even after I had stopped the live capturing event from the Wowza GoCoder iOS app. Is this by design? if I’m not capturing a live event or connected to the live stream from the GoCoder iOS app or any third-party encoding app, why does the transcoding time continue to accrue? Do I actually have to stop the live stream to stop the transcoding time accrual? My live stream does not end on a schedule, so I cannot rely on setting up a schedule to stop it.
Thanks for your help.
