Welcome to YOUZANA configuration page on Azure

Please follow below steps to configure YOUZANA on the Microsoft Azure platform. Please contact support@nicepeopleatwork.com in case you have any issue.

1. Account provisioning

In order to be able to access the management console, please access youzana.com and enter:

user: [Azure DNS Name]_azure

password : [Azure DNS Name]_azure

For example, if you [Azure DNS Name] is "youzana01", the user and password will be "youzana01_azure".

Once you have logged in, please go to Configuration > Users to choose a password from your own.

2. Management console


Encoding: By selecting the encoding application, you will be able to have full control of your encoding & encryption jobs.

In this simple interface the current status of your YOUZANA instance is monitored, providing information on the current running jobs, the jobs that are still in the queue waiting to be processed and if they ended up correctly or not.

Also, a real time and historic statistics on the number of processed jobs, minutes and GB is displayed for tracking billing information.

Finally, a full list of all the individual encoding jobs is shown at the end of the interface, so the user can track the status of any of them and also change its priority if required.

DRM:The DRM module allows to keep track on the number of licenses delivered by country, device and the DRM technology (Google Widevine, Microsoft PlayReady, Adobe Flash Access) in real time or past data.

On the other hand, the system also keeps track of which of those DRM licenses have been delivered successfully or not.

Job Launch

API Docs: You can download our complete API document from the following link:

API Youzana

Take into account that the only supported file transfer mechanism for Azure is "http".

Job XML Sample: In order to start encoding and packaging jobs, you need to generate an XML file with a given structure. One of its main parameters is the systemCode. You can get it by concatenating the Azure DNS Name and "_azure". For example, if your Azure DNS Name is "youzana01", the systemCode will be "youzana01_azure".

Below you can find an example of an XML job file (for more information on the fields please visit our API documentation):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <job> <name>jobName</name> <priority>9</priority> <description>description</description> <assetName>assetName</assetName> <accountCode>ACCOUNT_CODE</accountCode> <source> <type>s3</type> <host /> <path>sourcePath/</path> <user /> <password /> <accesskey>accesskey</accesskey> <secretkey>secretkey</secretkey> <bucketname>bucketname</bucketname> <regionname>regionname</regionname> </source> <result> <type>s3</type> <host /> <path>resultPath/</path> <user /> <password /> <accesskey>accesskey</accesskey> <secretkey>secretkey</secretkey> <bucketname>bucketname</bucketname> <regionname>regionname</regionname> </result> <transcoding> <source>videoSource.mp4</source> <tasks> <task> <name>name</name> <qualityKey>qualityKey</qualityKey> <resultFilename>result1.mp4</resultFilename> <encodingParams> <width>new_width</width> <height>new_height</height> <videoBitrate /> <audioBitrate /> <gop /> <extra /> </encodingParams> </task> </tasks> </transcoding> </job>

3. Encoding

The encoding module supports a predefined list of qualities or renditions that can be used as quality codes in each job definition.

Hereunder you can find the list of the most important ones, which have the following specifications:

QualityKey Resolution Bitrate (Kbps) VideoCodec AudioCodec FPS
SS_16_9_208P_208_MP20_ch 368x208 478 h264 aac Same as source
SS_16_9_404p_750_MP30_ch 720x404 878 h264 aac Same as source
SS_16_9_352p_1100_MP30_ch 624x352 1228 h264 aac Same as source
SS_16_9_404p_1100_MP30_ch 720x404 1228 h264 aac Same as source
SS_16_9_404p_1500_MP30_ch 720x404 1628 h264 aac Same as source
SS_16_9_720p_2500_MP32_ch 1280x720 2628 h264 aac Same as source
SS_16_9_1080p_2500_MP32_ch 1920x1080 2628 h264 aac Same as source
SS_16_9_720p_3400_MP32_ch 1280x720 3528 h264 aac Same as source
SS_16_9_1080p_3400_MP32_ch 1920x1080 3528 h264 aac Same as source

However, in case you wanted to set your own quality specifications you can set these up in the Job XML file.
