Response Structure

  • (dict) –

    • recordingConfiguration (dict) –

      • arn (string) –

        Recording-configuration ARN.

      • destinationConfiguration (dict) –

        A complex type that contains information about where recorded video will be stored.

        • s3 (dict) –

          An S3 destination configuration where recorded videos will be stored.

          • bucketName (string) –

            Location (S3 bucket name) where recorded videos will be stored.

      • name (string) –

        Recording-configuration name. The value does not need to be unique.

      • recordingReconnectWindowSeconds (integer) –

        If a broadcast disconnects and then reconnects within the specified interval, the multiple streams will be considered a single broadcast and merged together. Default: 0.

      • renditionConfiguration (dict) –

        Object that describes which renditions should be recorded for a stream.

        • renditionSelection (string) –

          Indicates which set of renditions are recorded for a stream. For BASIC channels, the CUSTOM value has no effect. If CUSTOM is specified, a set of renditions must be specified in the renditions field. Default: ALL.

        • renditions (list) –

          Indicates which renditions are recorded for a stream, if renditionSelection is CUSTOM; otherwise, this field is irrelevant. The selected renditions are recorded if they are available during the stream. If a selected rendition is unavailable, the best available rendition is recorded. For details on the resolution dimensions of each rendition, see Auto-Record to Amazon S3.

          • (string) –

      • state (string) –

        Indicates the current state of the recording configuration. When the state is ACTIVE, the configuration is ready for recording a channel stream.

      • tags (dict) –

        Tags attached to the resource. Array of 1-50 maps, each of the form string:string (key:value). See Tagging Amazon Web Services Resources for more information, including restrictions that apply to tags and “Tag naming limits and requirements”; Amazon IVS has no service-specific constraints beyond what is documented there.

        • (string) –

          • (string) –

      • thumbnailConfiguration (dict) –

        A complex type that allows you to enable/disable the recording of thumbnails for a live session and modify the interval at which thumbnails are generated for the live session.

        • recordingMode (string) –

          Thumbnail recording mode. Default: INTERVAL.

        • resolution (string) –

          Indicates the desired resolution of recorded thumbnails. Thumbnails are recorded at the selected resolution if the corresponding rendition is available during the stream; otherwise, they are recorded at source resolution. For more information about resolution values and their corresponding height and width dimensions, see Auto-Record to Amazon S3. Default: Null (source resolution is returned).

        • storage (list) –

          Indicates the format in which thumbnails are recorded. SEQUENTIAL records all generated thumbnails in a serial manner, to the media/thumbnails directory. LATEST saves the latest thumbnail in media/latest_thumbnail/thumb.jpg and overwrites it at the interval specified by targetIntervalSeconds. You can enable both SEQUENTIAL and LATEST. Default: SEQUENTIAL.

          • (string) –

        • targetIntervalSeconds (integer) –

          The targeted thumbnail-generation interval in seconds. This is configurable (and required) only if recordingMode is INTERVAL. Default: 60.

          Important: For the BASIC channel type, setting a value for targetIntervalSeconds does not guarantee that thumbnails are generated at the specified interval. For thumbnails to be generated at the targetIntervalSeconds interval, the IDR/Keyframe value for the input video must be less than the targetIntervalSeconds value. See Amazon IVS Streaming Configuration for information on setting IDR/Keyframe to the recommended value in video-encoder settings.
