Use flexible segment numbering

To simplify your encoder configuration and allow for a more resilient and versitile system, use flexible segment numbering for your live and archive enabled streams.

With flexible segment numbering, there's no need for unique sequential numbering or a preferred naming scheme as long as the segment names are unique.


When using archive enabled streams, flexible segment numbering is not backward compatible with your default system. Meaning, if you revert to your prior configuration, disabling flexible segment numbering, you won't have access to content streamed through flexible segment numbering.

Enable flexible segment numbering

To enable flexible segment numbering, contact your Support team for assistance and have this information handy:

  • Stream name
  • Stream ID
  • Ingest CP code
