Orchestrators set a price per pixel to charge for transcoding which is denominated in Wei (1 ETH = 1e18 Wei) which is advertised to broadcasters off-chain.
In the future, there will be tools available to help make informed pricing decisions. Currently, the recommendation is to ask in Discord if you are looking for help with setting a price that will allow you to receive work on the network.
You can configure your orchestrator to advertise a constant price by starting it
-autoAdjustPrice=false flag. Otherwise, the orchestrator will
automatically adjust its price based on the overhead of ticket redemption. Refer
Automatic Price Adjustment
docs for more information.

Enter the price for 1 pixels in Wei (required):
You should see a log from your node indicating that the price has been updated.
