Adding New Flavors

How can new flavors be created? For example, if I wanted to create a flavor for audio? Please advise. Thank you.

Hi @mark,

If you upload an audio only file, the default flavour set should be able to correctly transcode it. Naturally, if it is audio only, no video will be displayed. Regardless, if you do want to create custom flavours, you can either go to Admin console->Developer->Flavor Params which offers a form for creation, with the most common fields you may want to tweak or, you can use our API, for example, see:

Hello @jess, I was able to add a new flavor for audio via Admin console->Developer->Flavor Params but getting an error when the new file is uploaded and transcoded. How can I access the newly added flavor param via the Admin console to make adjustments? Please advise. Thank you.

Hello @mark,

Iā€™m afraid you cannot. For that, you will need to use $client->flavorParams->update() or else, $client->flavorParams->delete() and recreate using the form, whichever is best for you.
