Turning on Transcoding on Autoscaler

How to Enable/Disable Transcoding for Load balancers?

Enabling Transcoding while creating Load balancers involves slightly different steps unlike, the usual origin and edge servers adding method.

Step 1

  • On turning on Transcoding, a new “Preset” option appear so you can select your set of transcoding resolution.

Note:  If you have enabled the “Channel Creation” setting, then there will be two channels (output & input) created to support transcoding.

Step 2

  • Then enter your edge servers.
  • The channel creation option should be left “On” here too.
  • If you have turned on Transcoding on the previous step 1, then the Multi bitrate will be automatically turned on step 2.
  • Then select the push/pull option and click the “Generate Stream URL” button to generate bulk RTMP URLs.
  • And click the “Create” button. 

Note:  On clicking the “Generate Stream URL” button, bulk RTMP URLs for the selected set of resolutions get generated.
