VOD offers two billing modes: daily billing and monthly billing. The default billing mode is daily billing. If you want to change it to monthly billing, please contact your Tencent Cloud rep.
Packages fall into the daily billing mode.
After you purchase a resource package, there will be no additional fees incurred on the purchase date. As fees for a day are charged on the next day in the daily billing mode, the additional fees on the package purchase date are actually for the previous day.
Yes. Every time a video is watched with the same device ID through the VOD link, there will be traffic consumed, and fees will be incurred accordingly.
Each transcoding task is billed only once. A transcoded video will be billed another time only if it is transcoded again.
There are many possible reasons. You can simply troubleshoot as follows:
Accelerated traffic = bitrate * duration * number of viewers. You can use this formula to estimate how much traffic will be needed.
For example, if a video lasts for one hour at a bitrate of 500 Kbps and is watched by 100 users, the traffic consumed will be about 500 / 8 * 3600 * 100 = 22,500,000 KB = 22.5 GB
A task flow is to perform multiple template tasks at a time by splicing them. The tasks contained in the task flow are charged at the same prices as the corresponding billable items.
