This topic describes how to trigger a transcoding task in a workflow in the ApsaraVideo Media Processing (MPS) console.

Procedure

  1. Go to the MPS console.

    Log on to the MPS console.

  2. Add buckets and create Object Storage Service (OSS) storage paths.

    In the left-side navigation pane, choose Workflows > Media Buckets. On the page that appears, configure Input Buckets and Output Buckets. For more information, see Add media buckets.

  3. Enable a pipeline.

    In the left-side navigation pane, choose Global Settings > Pipelines. For more information, see Activate or pause an MPS queue.

  4. Create a workflow.

    In the left-side navigation pane, choose Workflows > Workflow Settings. For more information, see Create a workflow.

  5. Upload a file.
    You can upload a video file by using the MPS console or by using OSS. We recommend that you upload a video file by using OSS. After you upload the file, a media file for which workflow conditions are executed is automatically generated. For more information about how to upload a video file, see Video file upload and workflow execution.
    Note You can transcode video files that are uploaded to OSS in a workflow of MPS. Multiple video files can be transcoded at a time. The video file that is transcoded in an automatically triggered workflow is stored in the folder in which the input file is stored. You can configure multiple output paths for a video file that is transcoded in a manually triggered workflow. For more information, see Matching rule for workflow file triggering.
  6. View output media files

    In the left-side navigation pane, choose Media Management > Media List. For more information, see Media list.

    For more information about how to view the status of a workflow, see View execution Instances.
