How does Amity calculate video service minutes?
Video Service Minutes are calculated as the total number of minutes the viewers view on all videos within an Amity Social Cloud account - the minute views units are separated into 3 types depending on video resolution the viewer views at - SD (720p or less), HD (720p) and FHD (1080p) - and are charged at a different rate. All minute-view charges are rounded up to the nearest minute.
Account A: Created a live stream for 30 minutes, there are 700 viewers who view from start to the end in 480p resolution, with another 500 viewers joined at the 13-minute mark until the end in 720p resolution. Amity Video charges will be as followed:
SD Minute View: 700 viewers * 30 minute / view = 21,000 minute-views
HD Minute View: 500 viewers * 17 minute / view = 8,500 minute-views
SD Minute View Charge: $0.0014 / minute-view * 21,000 minute-views = $29.4
HD Minute View Charge: $0.0034 / minute-view * 8,500 minute-views = $28.9
Total Charge: $29.4 + $28.9 = $58.3
Please note that this example does not take into account any minute-views credit Account A may have. If Account A has any minute-views credit it will be deducted from the Minute-View before calculating the charge.
