- For accounts that created their first application in the TRTC console on or after November 1, 2020, billing starts from November 1, 2020.

- This document describes the relaying and transcoding fees for using TRTC’s MCU cluster for On-Cloud MixTranscoding. If you relay TRTC streams to CSS and then mix the streams using the live stream mixing feature of CSS, CSS will charge you live transcoding fees.
- If you push transcoded audio and video streams to CSS and stream them to audience via CDNs, CSS will charge you based on the traffic/bandwidth used.
TRTC calculates your usage of the relaying and transcoding service by adding up the durations of the streams output by all applications under your account via the mixtranscoding MCU cluster. There are two types of durations: video duration and audio duration.
A duration is calculated in seconds and daily cumulative seconds are converted to minutes for billing. A duration of less than one minute is calculated as one minute.
A video duration refers to the duration containing video images in a transcoding result. Videos are categorized by resolution as follows and billed accordingly:
|SD||≤ 640 × 480|
|HD||640 × 480 - 1280 × 720|
|FHD||> 1280 × 720|
An audio duration refers to the duration containing only audio in a transcoding result.
The TRTC On-Cloud MixTranscoding service is priced as follows:
|Codec||Item||Unit Price (USD/min)|
|Audio codec||Relaying and transcoding-audio||0.000799|
|H.264||Relaying and transcoding-H.264-SD||0.00228571|
|H.264||Relaying and transcoding-H.264-HD||0.00464286|
|H.264||Relaying and transcoding-H.264-FHD||0.00899|
TRTC On-Cloud MixTranscoding supports only daily pay-as-you-go. Fees for a day are deducted at 10 AM the next day.
The below example uses list prices. If you have signed a Tencent Cloud contract, prices specified in the contract will apply.
Assume that, on January 1, you used TRTC’s MCU cluster for On-Cloud MixTranscoding and output 1920 × 1080 and 640 × 360 videos of 100 minutes each using the H.264 codec, plus audio of 100 minutes using the audio codec.
That means on January 2, you would be charged 0.00899 USD/min × 100 min + 0.00464286 USD/min × 100 min + 0.000799 USD/min × 100 min = 2.16 USD.
