Virtual Channel specifics

What Manifest Manipulation logic implements for Virtual Channels

In Virtual Channel applications, VOD assets and Live streams are scheduled as slots for insertion in a live stream, instead of the original content. Therefore it relies on the Substitution logic.

If no slot is scheduled

If there is no program scheduled for the defined audience at a particular time, no contextualization takes place and the original manifest is returned with minor changes.

If the source scheduled is not available

If at the time where the manifest manipulation happens the manifest of the program scheduled is not available, the process of contextualisation cannot happen. As a result, the manifest will not be altered.
