Automated Media Publishing
This section contains detailed information about how to implement automated media publishing workflows. There are two basic methods you can use to implement such a workflow:
Web service-based automation, where media content is passed to the Content Engine via its REST web service
Syndication-based automation, where media content is passed to the Content Engine via its import/export or syndication subsystem
Whichever method you use, the basic objective is the same. You need to:
Define a content item of the correct type in the Content Engine.
Create the defined content item.
Change the status of the content item to
published. This causes the Content Engine to send the video/audio to Amazon Elastic Transcoder for transcoding and key frame generation.
