Encode Video to a UDP Stream

To generate a live UDP stream of the content that Media Server is ingesting, use the following procedure.

To encode video to a stream

  1. Create a new configuration to send to Media Server with the process action, or open an existing configuration that you want to modify.

  2. In the [Encoding] section, add a new encoding task by setting the EncodingEngineN parameter. You can give the task any name, for example:

  3. Below the [Encoding] section, create a configuration section for the task by typing the task name inside square brackets. For example:

  4. In the new section, set the following parameters:

    Type The type of encoding engine to use. Set this parameter to mpeg.
    VideoSize (Optional) The size of the encoded video, in pixels, width followed by height. If you want to use the same dimensions as the source, set this parameter to copy. To ensure Media Server uses the same aspect ratio as the source video, set either the width or height and set the other dimension to zero.
    OutputURL The URL to stream to. For example, udp://
    Format The container format. For example, mpegts for MPEG transport stream.

    For example:


    For more information about the configuration parameters that you can use to configure this task, refer to the Media Server Reference.

  5. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
