Steps for Creating Assets Using an SaaS
Steps 3 - 9 are described in this section.
1.
2.
3.
Initiate Encoding Using an SaaS by creating a setup.xml file describing the Website of your chosen encoding service and your login credentials for the service, where you want the multi-bitrate profiles output to, and credentials for that (i.e. FTP site and credentials), and how often you want status polling done.
4.
For each asset, create an asset.xml file describing the single-bitrate video file, how many multi-bitrate profiles you want created for it and at what rates, including frames-per-second, container format, and keyframe interval.
5.
Run the SFAssetGenerator.py python script referencing the setup.xml and asset.xml files you created. This script outputs the jobid.xml file with descriptions of the multi-bitrate profiles created by the SaaS.
6.
Verify that Encoding has Completed and the assets are transferred to your FTP output account given in your setup.xml file.
7.
Prepare Media Flow Controller for Assets Created Using an SaaS by creating the segment_config.xml file describing the multi-bitrate assets for Media Flow Controller including the IP address of the Media Flow Controller, where the assets are located, access credentials for obtaining the assets, and a temporary directory in the system for SmoothFlow processing.
8.
Run the SFSegment.py python script referencing the segment_config.xml file you created to initiate SmoothFlow processing and publishing to Media Flow Controller, and render the assets ready for delivery.
