To replace advertisements in a live stream

  1. Configure the encoder to transmit script commands that signal the start of an advertising break.
  2. Create a playlist that alternates between primary and secondary digital media sources according to script commands received from the encoder.
  3. Create or edit a publishing point that uses the playlist you created in the previous section as its content source.
  4. Start the encoder and begin streaming your live broadcast. Check that the replacement advertisement transitions are smooth and timed correctly. If the player needs more pre-buffering time to avoid gaps and overlap, make the appropriate changes in the encoder configuration.
