Configuring Streams

From the Streams page, you can create multiple output streams using the defined video encoders, audio encoders, and metadata (if applicable). Each output stream is configured independently. For details see:


Streams List View

To open the Outputs List View:

  1. Click Streaming on the sidebar, and select the Streams tab.
    The Outputs List View opens, displaying the list of defined streams for the encoder.

    The Streams List View displays the Status, Stream Name, Protocol, Destination (IP Address and Port), and Selected Content (Video/Audio Encoders and Metadata source) for each stream.
  2. From here, you can perform the following tasks:
    • To create a stream, click the Add Stream button.
    • To view details or modify the settings for a stream, click the Settings icon
       in the Stream panel to expand the Stream Detail View. From here you can view or modify the:
      • Source settings
      • Streaming Parameters
      • Destination
      • Link Parameters
      • SAP
    • From the Stream Detail View, you can also view the video or audio encoder, or metadata source for a stream. You can view and modify these configurations under Source.
    • The Stream State is color coded, and the Stream Status is indicated by the Status icon.

      • The possible Stream Statuses are: 

        StatusColor StateIconDescription

        DNS resolution of the host name to IP address is in progress.

        SCRAMBLED

        The stream is scrambled, i.e. the encoder is unable to decrypt the encrypted stream.

        Red FAILED


        An error has occurred, and caused the stream to fail.

    • To view the stream statistics, click on the Statistics icon

      in the Stream Panel. From here, you can:

      • Click Reset to reset the stream statistics
      • (SRT streams only) Click Detailed Statistics to view the detailed stream statistics page

      Tip

      To expand or collapse the statistics or settings details for all streams at one time, hold the shift key and click the Statistics icon

      or Settings icon
      on any stream.

    • To change the status for an existing stream, click the check box to the far left of the Stream Panel and select either Start, Stop (as applicable), or Delete. Alternatively, click the Start/Stop icon
      /
      to start or stop the stream.
