Audio Channel Condition

With the help of the audio channel condition it is possible to use the number of audio channels in a video file as a condition for further actions. Helmut 4 uses Media Info for this, which is automatically installed when the client is installed. It is possible to define the number of channels that are or should be available. This condition is helpful if e.g. a proxy with the appropriate number of audio tracks is to be generated for each video file. (Mandatory requirement for Premiere Pro Proxy workflows).

The Audio Channel Condition can theoretically be queried in every stream, as it is not linked to the project object or the user object, but it mostly makes sense if there is a job object in the stream. The job object is available if it is a HelmutIO stream.

Mediainfo binary path

The path to the mediainfo binary can be customized if the binary is located in a different directory or if a different version is desired.
