Create a static ingest point

Learn how to create a reusable ingest point

When producing repeated live events, an ingest point allows you to configure your encoder to push to a fixed ingest URL and have the live stream receive its input.

An ingest point is a non-unique, persistent URL designed to receive source input from your encoder. Ingest points support SRT and RTMP formats and can be attached to only one live stream at a time.

Ingest points offer several benefits:

  • Consistent encoder configuration while allowing separate management of the source input destination
  • Automatic routing of any received source to the attached live stream
  • Reuse in subsequent live streams
