Wowza + Cloudfont + JW 6
I am live stream testing using Wowza 3.5 with Amazon Cloudfront I can live stream to JW 6 over Cloudfront a single stream.
The source URL looks like this:
so for the live test stream I'm running right now the single stream URL is
But the thing is, I really want to stream using adaptive bit rate streaming over Cloudfront.
I have reached out to both Wowza and Amazon support. And they have given me some things to try but they haven't worked.
It is my understanding that I need to use a SMIL file for JW 6 adaptive rate streaming.
I have created a SMIL file and it is located in the "content" folder of the Wowza startup package in my S3 bucket:
After a lot of trying different source URLs for the SMIL file, the only one I could get to work is
The problem is that I can only get the source URL to use the Wowza origin server and not the Cloudfront domain server (http://d1hstnkii5i7nh.cloudfront.net)
I don't own a Mac but I've also been told the ABR stream switcher is not showing up on OSX Safari.
I am running two simple HTML pages live streaming to JW 6 right now with the two different source URLs at:
I would be incredibly grateful if you could check it out and give me any guidance on the best JW 6 source URLs to use to adaptive bit rate stream over Wowza-Cloudfront.
If the stream happens to be off I can turn it on again any time that is good for you. Thank you.
