The maximum amount of video and audio to ingest, before stopping ingestion. If you do not set this parameter, there is no limit on the amount of video and audio that is ingested.

You can set this parameter to ingest part of a video file, or a fixed amount of a continuous stream.

If the maximum duration is reached, Media Server stops ingestion but does finish processing any frames that have already been ingested.
