From Mediastream platform, you can have total control of your VOD - AOD content, in this feature, you will be able to adjust the renditions you require in your account and some options that will only be displayed in the media module.
Before explaining it is important to remember that any adjustment made in this feature will have an impact on your transcoding quota and storage capacity, and some sections of the module will not be available to your account unless you manage them with the sales representative responsible for your account.
The module is divided as follows:
Automatic video transcoding
Every time a new VOD media file is loaded in platform, additional renditions will be automatically created, from this section you can select the ones you require to be generated, remember that platform always saves the media in its original format, you have:
Video Renditions 16:9 (Horizontal)
Video Renditions 9:16 (Vertical)
The parameters for each rendition are set by default and cannot be modified, they are recommended by platform for each video resolution. The more renditions you have set, the longer the transcoding process will take and each rendition, from the original one, generates storage space in the platform.
Automatic audio transcoding
Like VOD, you can select the transcoding renditions for your audio files, platform has qualities from 32 to 256 kbps, it is recommended to always generate the audios in 128 kbps, for adaptive audio in view of the user experience, it is recommended as low quality a minimum of 64kbps and a maximum of 256kbps.
Platform allows you to generate a backup of your original files via AWS S3, by activating this feature, it will also store the highest quality of the files generated from Media edit and Live editor. You should speak to your sales representative to activate this feature.
Platform has some additional features for your media, they are listed within the module in the following order:
Force fill a category for a Media: forces the filling of a category for a media, in this case, if you are going to save a media, setting the category becomes mandatory and platform displays this message:
