Encoding settings are critical to providing the best possible video experience for your audience. These settings are often painstakingly fine-tuned and optimized by publishers for the type of video content and the intended playback device or network conditions. In many cases, these settings will remain constant for an individual publisher for a long period of time or at least the duration of a particular campaign, series or other video initiative.
At Brightcove, we are always on the hunt for ways to improve your workflows and streamline video publishing. Today, we announce another great new feature within the Video Cloud Live module to make your life easier - Live Ingestion Profiles. With Live Ingestion Profiles, you have the ability to edit and save custom transcoding settings. Simply create a new live event, edit the transcoding settings to your exact specifications, give the profile a name and save. For future live events, you can select this custom profile from a drop-down instead of re-entering all of the settings. For more detailed instructions, click here.
