Amazon Elastic Transcoder converts media files that are stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) into media files in the formats required by consumer playback devices. For example, you can convert large, high-quality digital media files into formats that you can play back on mobile devices, tablets, web browsers, and connected televisions.


To set up the OpsRamp AWS integration and discover the AWS service, go to AWS Integration Discovery Profile and select Elastic Transcoder.
