The Consumption Page

On this page you can specify how the encoded (and combined) audio and video should be consumed, for instance by viewers as a HTTP stream.

You may choose the Stream Over HTTP, Save To Disk, or Stream to Icecast2 options, choosing more than one option if necessary.

If you chose both audio and video on the Production page, then you may now select an option here to provide either Audio & Video, Audio only or Video only. Again, you may choose more than one option, to provide multiple streams or files.

The worker drop-down choice allows you to choose what computer this component should run on, for instance if the camera is attached to a different computer that is available via the network. This allows you to distribute tasks across several server computers. See the Deployment chapter to learn how to create extra workers. The Configuration Assistant would then offer these workers in the drop-down choice after connecting to their manager.
