How to use Transcoding


Adding a Transcoding Zone

Perform the following steps while logged into the CDN Control Panel to add a Transcoding Zone:

  1. Click the "Add" button.
  2. Fill in the required fields and click the "Save" button. 



Field nameDescription
LabelDefines the custom name of a Transcoding Zone.
ActiveTrancoding Zone can be Activate or Inactivate. The zone needs to be activated in order to trancode the stream.
CNAME

A CNAME, or Canonical Name record, is an entry within the Domain Name System (DNS) that specifies where a user can find the Transcoded stream. A CNAME is required to associate your domain with the stream.
For example, you first create a Transcoded Zone and then create a DNS record for your domain (e.g. livestream.example.com) and point it to the CDN Domain of your zone (e.g. a2a23913007f60933db72f23f7462584.trz.lswcdn.net).

Output ProfilesA list of pre-defined output profiles that define the quality of the stream. You can select one or more profiles.
Transcoding LocationThe region where the transcoding will take place.
WhitelistIPs or subnets added to the whitelist will always be allowed to access your content.
