Grant a Venue Access to an Encoder

  • Updated

Decoders pull content down from buckets in the cloud, called encoder channels, to stream to physical locations. For your content to show in the decoder interface, you’ll need to grant your decoder access to your encoder channel(s). You can do this by associating your decoder’s venue license with one or more encoder channels. A venue is a license used for decoder access at physical locations. To learn more about setting up your decoder see Add a Decoder.

If you have multiple encoder channels, you’ll need to find which encoder channel your content is stored in and make sure your decoder has access to the correct ones.

Give Your Venue Access to an Encoder Channel

  1. Log into Studio.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Navigate to the Venues page. (Go there)image1.png
  1. Find the venue you want to grant access to and click the options icon unnamed.png > View Details.
  2. Click the edit icon image3.png. You can edit any venue details except license type (this is determined by your Resi subscription). 
  3. Under the Permissions section, check the box next to the encoder channel that contains your event. image5.png
  1. Click Save
  2. Refresh your decoder interface. Your decoder will now have access to all videos in that encoder channel.

Which Encoder Channel Has My Video?

If you have encoder videos already and/or more than one encoder channel, you’ll need to first find which encoder channel is storing the video you want to stream. To find which encoder channel has your video:

  1. Navigate to the Library page (Go there).
  2. Navigate to the Encoder Videos tab (Go there).
  3. Find the encoder video you want to show.

If you’re unsure which video it is, you can watch any by hovering your mouse over each, then clicking the options icon > View Details. The player will show your content.

  1. Hover over the video you want to stream, click the options icon > View Details.
  2. At the bottom of the page, you’ll see the encoder channel that holds that content.image4.png
