How to Setup an Audio Only Output in the Monitor Tool

The below will outline how to setup an AUDIO ONLY Output in the Monitor Tool including available filters to target a specific audience that will receive AUDIO ONLY when viewing the webcast.

Launch Studio as an Admin and select TOOLS>MONITOR TOOL.

In the MONITOR TOOL, select OUTPUTS followed by the  icon.  Select DASH and/or the HLS output.

Note:  If the audience you are targeting will be viewing on the IE 11 browser, you must add an HLS output.  If you are unsure, it is recommended to add an output for both Dash and HLS.

Take the following actions:

  • Insert the Output Title
  • Select the Default Encoding Profile. Select VIEW to view the settings. If a custom profile is needed, Please contact us by completing the form on this link
  • DO NOT update the CDN
  • Select AUDIO ONLY for Highest Quality Level

Once complete, click SAVE.

Upon immediate save, your newly added Output will display.  Select    followed by
