During the sacrament I have a google slide presentation running on a loop with pictures of Jesus and Sacrament in process at the bottom and unplug the sound. Saves starting and stopping the stream.

Coming back late. I finally remembered to get the config file sent to the Teradek.

Code: Select all

<teradek_encoder>
<encode>
<video>
<quality>Custom</quality>
<custom_resolution>720</custom_resolution>
<custom_bitrate>1250000</custom_bitrate>
<aspect>auto</aspect>
<frame_rate_fraction>full</frame_rate_fraction>
</video>
<audio>
<quality>Custom</quality>
<custom_bitrate>48000</custom_bitrate>
</audio>
</encode>
<output>
<rtmp>
<url>rtmp://MHW-40-125435.westus2.cloudapp.azure.com/169P</url>
<stream>4da11400c87246a9c</stream>
<adaptive_bitrate>0</adaptive_bitrate>
<auto_reconnect>1</auto_reconnect>
<auto_start_broadcast>1</auto_start_broadcast>
</rtmp>
</output>
</teradek_encoder>
As you can see, there's nothing in there for setting the start time, end time, or duration. It's only for telling the encoder where to upload the stream.

I noticed an update coming to the webcast portal (an alert notification after logging ) that talked about a new feature relating to static stream names. Might this help if we only have to setup the stream name once on the teradek? Or will that not matter for auto starting the stream?

If you're using automation to allow the Teradek to get the information, I don't think this will make a difference. Where it will help is those using other devices.

If you are already able to use autoconfigure then this will not make a difference. If you have to manually go into the Teradek VidiU each time and enter the RTMP and Streaming codes, this will benefit you greatly, because with a repeating event, the codes will no longer change each time.
