Has anyone figured out how ...Has anyone figured out how to take advantage of the new Amazon Cloudfront Streaming option announced today? I took a quick look at the RTMP tutorial, but I'm not 100% sure how that translates to use with Cloudfront. I'm assuming the player has to go in a traditional Cloudfront distribution, and the video goes in the streaming one. Anyone have this working yet and care to share?

Check out my very own tool CloudBerry Explorer that helps to manage S3 and CloudFront. The latest version supports CloudFront Streaming and you can also generate an HTML code snippets for JW Player. It is a freeware. http://s3.cloudberrylab.com/
With Amazon stating that "streaming private media files with a signed URL is not supported", does that mean that anyone who knows the URL of my CloudFront RTMP stream will be able to play it back via a player on their website? Or even a desktop application like VLC?
Should I go for a solution like Influxis if I need more control over who can have access to my paid video content?
Hello everyone. I'm trying to stream from Cloudfront and I can't tell if it is just slow or is waiting for the entire mp4 file to load before streaming. I've ran the Adobe Air app that is linked from this site to fix the "moov atom" - but from the response I don't know if 1. it is OK and should work or 2. does not have the moov atom. I created the file in Handbrake and selected the "web streaming" option, fwiw.
I'll include all that I can below, and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dale

And here is a copy of the mp4 file (about 5.5 MB) that I'm trying to stream: http://www.overshield.com/download/index.php?path=&download=stream.mp4
And the response from the Adobe Air app that fixes the moov atom when I process that mp4: bc.. File.size: 5675044 Reading Atom Metadata: [code: ftyp,size: 28,offset: 0] Reading Atom Metadata: [code: moov,size: 31402,offset: 28] Reading Atom Metadata: [code: mdat,size: 5643614,offset: 31430] ACTION: Parsing Bytes for Information 5675044 ERROR: The MOOV atom is not located at the end of the file, the file is ready for progressive download or it is a invalid file Completed Time: 0.149s
jamix, I think I have read that amazon supports securing the stream with a crossdomain.xml file that limits access to the stream from your url. So People should not be able to play your stream from a stand alone player like vlc or from a web-player on another domain.
This is quoted from the Developer Guide for cloudfront bc.. Crossdomain.xml
Adobe Flash Media Server allows the use of a crossdomain.xml file that specifies which domains can access media files in a particular domain. CloudFront supplies a default file that allows all domains to access the media files in your streaming distribution. If you implement a more restrictive crossdomain.xml file, CloudFront ignores it.
