Media Server can analyze a media file or stream and return information about whether it can be ingested.
To determine whether Media Server can Ingest a File or Stream
Run the action
DescribeMedia. For example:
Media Server returns information about the media and its ability to ingest it.
supported element in the response indicates the likelihood that Media Server can ingest the media. The value can be:
yes- the format and codecs are supported, so in most cases Media Server should be able to ingest the media. Ingestion can still fail in some cases, for example if Media Server encounters corrupt data.
maybe- Media Server can open the media but the format or codecs have not been tested.
no- indicates that the media cannot be ingested.
