Channel Encoding Setup

Select encoding options for a new channel, or view and update the encoding options for an existing channel.

Important: The settings during the initial Ooyala Live account configuration determine which packaging and encoding options are available. The options you select determine some of the options that appear on the following pages. This example follows the channel setup when the Ooyala Package is selected as the Packaging Partner.
Tip: Make sure you have at least one slate available. In general, a slate is required when creating a channel. To read more about slates, see Slates.
Channel Maintenance Considerations:
  • Important: Clipping enabled channels must be restarted for the following encoder or service changes:
    • Bitrate changes
    • Caption changes
    • Time clock modifications
    • Starting or stopping ingest services
Restarting a channel clears any existing DVR buffer.
