How it works

Manifest edit and a plugins library is installed alongside Unified Streaming's other software packages by default. Plugins may be selected from the plugin library and configured into a single or multi-stage processing pipeline. Also it is possible to write and use customized plugins. Modifications to client manifests are introduced before forwarding the manifest to the downstream cache/CDN components of the workflow.
