Configuring S3 Buckets

This topic explains how to configure one or more AWS S3 buckets to use as a destination for Cloud Playout channels.


You can use AWS S3 buckets as either the sole destination for a Cloud Playout channel or in addition to an RTMP address or Brightcove Live. The Configuration page allows you to set up the configuration for your bucket(s) once instead of each time you create a channel.
