Use Asynchronous Actions

When you send an asynchronous action, Media Server adds the task to a queue and returns a token that you can use to check its status. Media Server performs the task when a thread becomes available.

Check the Status of an Asynchronous Action

To check the status of an asynchronous action, use the token that was returned by Media Server with the QueueInfo action. For more information about the QueueInfo action, see the Media Server Reference.
