Creating Custom Live Ingest Profiles

In this topic you will learn how to create and manage custom Live ingest profiles.

The Ingest Profiles Administration page is used to manage custom Live ingest profiles. Live ingest profiles determine the number and quality of the renditions created by Brightcove Live. The Live ingest profiles are not used when uploading videos to a Video Cloud account. Ingest profiles are defined using JSON. Before creating a new ingest profile, review the Standard Live Ingest Profiles document to see if there is an existing profile available that will meet your needs.

Creating a new profile

The Ingest Profiles Administration page can be used to create custom Live ingest profiles. Note that for the profile to appear in the Live module UI, it should have "model_version": 1 as part of the profile properties.

To create a new custom Live ingest profile:

  1. Click the ADMIN link in the Studio header.
  2. Click the Ingest Profiles link.
  3. Click New Profile > Live.
  4. Enter a Name for the profile and then click Create.
  5. Use the Profile Editor to edit the profile as needed.
  6. Click Save.

Duplicating a profile

It is possible to create a new profile by duplicating an existing profile. Then, you can edit the new profile with your changes. Note that for the profile to appear in the Live module UI, it should have "model_version": 1 as part of the profile.

To create a custom Live ingest profile by duplicating an existing profile:

  1. Click the ADMIN link in the Studio header.
  2. Click the Ingest Profiles link.
  3. Locate a profile with a Type of Standard Live to duplicate. Click the profile name to open the profile editor.
  4. Click Duplicate. The profile editor will open with the new profile.
  5. Scroll to the top of the profile. Edit the name element to give the profile a meaningful name. This name will be displayed inside Video Cloud Studio.
  6. Edit the description element to give the profile a meaningful description.
  7. Edit the rendition information as needed.
  8. Click Save.

The newly created profile will appear in the list of profiles. Custom profiles can be deleted by clicking the delete () button.
