Create a Workflow to Transcode All SnapStream Recordings

Workflows allow you to set up recurring actions for recordings. One of the most powerful workflows is the ability to transcode all recordings from the original MPEG-2 transport stream file.

In this how-to, we will set up a workflow to transcode all recordings to the H.264 format.

Choose “Workflows” under Settings on the Admin page to go to the Workflows page.

Choose “Add New Workflow”.

Give your workflow a name. This workflow will be transcoding all recordings so it is named “Transcode All”

Set your Trigger for this workflow from the Trigger Conditions drop down menu. Selecting “Recording Finished” will transcode each recording once the recording has completed.

Drag and drop the transcode action you want to add to your workflow. For this workflow, we will be transcoding all recording to H.264.

Choose a folder for the completed transcoded file to be located.

To change the recording profile for the transcoded H.264 file, select a different profile from the “Profile” picklist.

Your new workflow is complete and is immediately running. If you need to make edits, simply click on it in the list.

To remove a workflow, select it and click “Delete”. You can delete multiple workflows by selecting multiple checkboxes.
