AWS Blog | Upload and transcode video with AWS Elemental MediaConvert & Magine Pro

Magine Pro Software Engineer, Mateusz Herczka recently outlined the design of a simple but effective API and its mapping to an AWS Elemental MediaConvert job on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) blog. In the post, Mateusz presents three customer use cases that require an intermediate transcoding step before submission to an automated transcoded pipeline, including:

  1. A single container file contains several audio tracks. The file includes final downmixed stereo audio as two mono tracks. Other audio tracks are also present, for example, “music/effects” and “foley.” The customer wants to only keep the main downmixed audio and ignore the rest.
  2. A sports event is edited live with a multi-camera setup, and the resulting stream is recorded with a hardware device. The output is an external reference MOV file. Several media container files are stored in a separate folder. Again, some of the audio tracks are extra commentary and are not used. The customer wants to select one video and one stereo audio file.
  3. A single container file contains one video and one audio track. The left and right stereo channels are flipped in the audio track. The customer wants to correct the stereo image.

Find out how Mateusz applied a UX mindset to the design of a simple API that uses the capabilities of MediaConvert to address these three unique use cases. Read the post in full over on the AWS blog.
