Publishing workflow

The encoder publishes primary and backup streams with the following URLs:

Primary publishing hostname

p-ep{stream_id}.i.akamaientrypoint.net

Primary publishing path

dash/[stream_id]/[event_name]

Example: http://p-ep50002.i.akamaientrypoint.net/dash/50002/test79

Backup publishing hostname

b-ep{stream_id}.i.akamaientrypoint.net

Backup publishing path

dash/[stream_id]-b/[event_name]

Example: http://b-ep50002.i.akamaientrypoint.net/dash/50002-b/test79

Note the following:

  • The encoder publishes stream to both locations — primary and backup.
  • The segments and mpd are duplicated across primary and backup and should be identical.
