With AWS Elemental MediaLive, you can now insert Apple timed ID3 metadata tags into HLS live channel outputs. ID3 metadata tags enable data to be embedded into HLS video streams at specified timecodes, which can be used by downstream systems or clients to enhance the playback experience. ID3 metadata tags are inserted using the same scheduling API used for SCTE-35 and static image insertion, and input switching for channels.
