Our new Cloud Transcoding service allows the generation of multiple resolutions in the HLS protocol from the sending of a single resolution in the RTMP protocol. For example, if you send a signal in 1080p resolution via RTMP, our system will automatically create 1080p, 720p, 480p, 360p, 240p and 144p resolutions, which will be distributed in HLS.

The steps to follow to implement are the following:

1.- You must create the live signal, if it is already created, you must enter the signal you are going to use:

2.- Then, you must go to Publishing Points:

3.- Select the Cloud Transcoding option:

When you select Enabled Yes, you must save the change (Save Change) for it to be applied.

4.- When enabling the service, the RTMP and WebDAV publishing points will disappear. In addition, you will be able to view the Primary & Secondary publication points together with their respective Stream Keys (they must be copied to the encoder to be used):

5.- The Quality option will allow us to select the quality with which we send the RTMP in order to generate the qualities:

Important: The qualities are generated automatically when selecting the Quaility and are not editable.

6.- You must activate the Transcoding option for your publication to be received in Platform:

Important: When enabling Transcoding you must save the changes (Save Changes) and the Enabled and Quality options will be blocked.

7.- To deactivate the options. First you must deactivate the Transcoding option and save changes. Finally, you can deactivate Cloud Transcoding in the Enabled option and save changes:

With these simple steps you will be able to correctly enable and configure your Cloud Transcoding.

To consider:

· Cada vez que se active y desactive la opción de Cloud transcoding sobre una señal live, los parámetros rtmp y stream key facilitados cambiaran.

Once your transmission is finished, it is recommended to completely deactivate the cloud transcoding since it generates a cost when it is active (enabled)
