ApsaraVideo for Media Processing Pricing

Price calculation formula: Transcoding fee = Output file duration x Transcoding unit price

Output duration: For each output file, fees are calculated by minute, with durations precise to two decimal places and the second decimal place rounded up if the third decimal place is 5 or larger. Videos of less than 1 second are counted as 0.02 minutes.

Description:

1.The output specification is determined by the long and short sides of the output video resolution. For example, output video resolutions where the horizontal side does not exceed 1280 and the vertical side does not exceed 720 are regarded as the SD (1280 x 720) specification. If the horizontal side of the output video exceeds 1280 or the vertical side exceeds 720, this video provides a higher specification.

2. Above price is for normal transcoding, the price of narrowband HD 1.0 is triple the normal price.

Considerations

1. Service suspension mechanism

When your current account balance is insufficient, Alibaba Cloud will suspend your service within 15 days. After service is suspended, you cannot submit any new tasks, and Alibaba does not provide Media Processing for tasks you have already submitted for execution. However, tasks that are currently in the state of transcoding will continue until they are complete. If you top up your account within 15 days (360 hours (15 x 24) from the time of account suspension), your suspended Media Processing service is restored and can continue to use the service. After 15 days, tasks you have submitted for execution are released, and your data cannot be recovered.

2. Other considerations

Transcoding resources are allocated through mutually independent pipelines. A single transcoding resource can only process one task at a time. Media Processing supports shared transcoding resources, and each user is given a quota of such resources. The maximum number of tasks simultaneously processed for a single user cannot exceed the quota. When the system is busy, the number of jobs simultaneously processed may be less than the quota of the shared transcoding resources.
