Introduction

When creating a Dynamic Ingest request using the Dynamic Ingest API or uploading videos using the Upload module, you must supply a profile which determines the number and type of renditions created by the Video Cloud ingestion process. This topic provides detailed information on each of the Dynamic Delivery profiles. For non Dynamic Delivery accounts, see the Standard Ingest Profiles topic.

For an overview of Dynamic Delivery, see Overview of Dynamic Delivery. For an overview of Context Aware Encoding, see Overview of Context Aware Encoding.

Notes:

  • This document shows profiles for regular Dynamic Delivery and Context Aware Encoding. See Context Aware Encoding for details.
  • Because of the different ways that static Dynamic Delivery and Context Aware Encoding profiles work, you will see different information in profile details below:
    • For static Dynamic Delivery profiles, a list of included renditions is shown
    • For Context Aware Encoding profiles, a table of Dynamic Profile Settings that are used in determining what renditions to produce are shown

It is also possible to create your own custom ingest profiles. For information, see the appropriate topic:

Renditions

For details on all available default renditions that you can use in your ingest profile, see the table below.

Comparison of Profiles

Audio renditions

Audio Renditions
Name[1-1] Audio Bit Rate (kbps) Audio Channels Audio Codec Forced Keyframe Rate Fragment Duration (ms) Fragment Track Timescale Segment Length (sec)

Notes

  • [1-1] When you reference a rendition in an ingest profile, be sure to prefix the name with default/ - for example: default/audio128

Dynamic delivery video renditions

Video Renditions
Name[2-2] Bit Rate (kbps) Height[2-1] (px) Aspect Mode Decoder Bitrate Cap Decoder Buffer Size Forced Keyframe Rate Fragment Duration (ms) H264 b-frames H264 Profile Segment Length (sec) Speed Video Codec

Notes

  • [2-1] Width of output renditions depends on input source aspect ratio
  • [2-2] When you reference a rendition in an ingest profile, be sure to prefix the name with default/ - for example: default/video2000

Progressive video renditions

Progressive Renditions
Name[3-2] Video Bit Rate (kbps) Audio Bit Rate (kbps) Height[3-1] (px) Decoder Bitrate Cap Decoder Buffer Size H264 Profile

Notes

  • [3-0] In addition to the properties shown above, all progressive renditions have the following settings:
    • Aspect Mode: Preserve
    • Speed: 3
    • Video Codec: h264
    • Upscale: false
    • Audio Codec: aac
    • AAC Profile: aac-lc
  • [3-1] Width of output renditions depends on input source aspect ratio
  • [3-2] When you reference a rendition in an ingest profile, be sure to prefix the name with default/ - for example: default/progressive1200

If you require renditions with bit rates/resolutions other than those in the tables above, please Contact Brightcove Support.
