        We need this, otherwise we can't take our Windows Media streams and transcode them to Live Smooth Streaming for Apple users.

        Let's do it!

        Thank you

        A must have .. we have a .wmv streaming appliance that we want to convert live streams for smooth streaming and we need this option.

        We want to use it in our airfield.
        Please Do it.

        Thank you

        It does reduce cost of live transcode. Instead of using composite card or SDI, I can just use udp transport stream (mpeg2/mpeg4).

        This is crucial for many scenarios.
        EE4 live stream source into EE4 live stream encoding session WITHOUT the need for any transcoding or re-encoding if input output formats match.
        In addition I need to simulate live streams from a file source WITHOUT the need for transcoding or re-encoding if input output formats match.
        Ideally an EE4 live encoding session could take .asx or .smil playlists as input. The playlist should be able to contain a mix of already encoded files as well as live sources form other EE4 live encoders and pass through the content with minimal processing, maybe just adding overlays, closed captioning, script commands, and additional audio streams for multilanguage support, where each languages audio is live encoded by different encoders and fed into the same downstream live encoding session.

        This would allow to have off-site simultaneous translators (located in different parts of the world) live encodig their own audio stream with EE4. Those live audio streams could then be fed into the downstream EE4 live encoder running somewhere in the cloud, which then combines the primary audio/video feed and the multiple simultaneous translation live audio feeds and creates the final live output stream with video and multilanguage audio. The translators around the world would watch the primary audio/video feed from the source encoder and use low latency audio codecs to encode. It would be OK to buffer all the streams for several seconds on the final downstream encoder that is combining all the srouces into a single live stream.

        Of course a silverlight player template that dynamically populates a dropdown box for multiple language audio sources based on the number of languages it finds in the live source playlist file (.asx or .smil) would be the icing on the cake!

        A really must have. There are lots of scenarios where you can use that one!

        must-have for a professional encoder, please do it!

        I have a transport stream over UDP with MPEG2 or H.264 that I need to output for Windows Media Services, transcoded into VC-1 or even (if possible) without transcoding in case the input is in H.264. PLEASE add this..

        This is a nice must-have-feature we would like to see implemented. The sooner the better!!!!!!
