segment is transcoded or archived. Trimming is
only available for archive enabled events.

event is automatically trimmed. The amount of
extra time you can add is constrained by the
length of your event. The default auto-trim time
is the event duration plus 1 hour.

hours for an event less than or equal to 1 hour.
For an 8 hour event you can add a maximum of 4
hours before auto trimming starts.

constrained by the duration of the event.
