Live Streaming Highlights Editing

Last updated: 2023-10-18 09:59:09
    Live streaming highlights rely on the time-shifting capabilities, which means that during or after the live stream, a user can select an exciting segment from the past live content, generate a time-shifted playback address, and conveniently redistribute the highlights. Additionally, through media processing capabilities, live streaming highlights can be solidified into object storage for long-term preservation.
    This article introduces how to use live streaming time-shifting to create highlights from live content, as well as how to use media processing capabilities to solidify and store live streaming highlight clips.


    Using the live streaming highlights clipping feature, please make sure you have created a time-shift template, bound the streaming domain, and successfully streamed.
    To use the live broadcast editing and curing capability, please make sure you have activated the Tencent Cloud MPS service. The solidified content will be stored in the COS Service, and activating the MPS service will automatically activate the COS service.
