Configuring transformation services for Media Management

This information helps you to configure Alfresco to communicate with AWS Elastic Transcoder. This transformation service is often configured for cloud deployments or very large resource intensive on-premise deployments.

Edit your alfresco-global.properties file to turn off content service node transformations for certain file (MIME) types; for example, video to video, video to audio, and image to image:
content.transformer.RemoteVideo.mimetypes.video/*.video/*.supported=false
content.transformer.RemoteVideo.mimetypes.video/*.audio/*.supported=false
content.transformer.RemoteImage.mimetypes.image/*.image/*.supported=false
See Configuring Media Management for more information on different transformation options.
Important: Video transformation (transcoding) is very resource intensive and can take a long time to complete. Make sure that any rules that you configure using video transcoding run in the background, to prevent the rule from failing due to a Share timeout. For more information about creating rules, see Creating a rule.
