Increasing the buffer size for cupertino streaming to have reliable playback of audio
I am experimenting with a trial version of the Wowza server and my goal right now is to find a way to increase the buffer size for Apple HTTP Live Streaming/cupertino streaming to have reliable playback of audio only when temporarily travelling through an area of low coverage in a cellular network. I am re-streaming audio from an Icecast2 server.
In Icecast2 servers the burst-size can be set to 5 minutes or so to have a very reliable playback of the audio and a similar setting can be made in Shoutcast servers.
Are there ways to set the cupertino streaming settings cupertinoChunkDurationTarget, cupertinoMaxChunkCount, cupertinoPlaylistChunkCount, cupertinoRepeaterChunkCount and others, to reach the same effect as described above for Icecast2 and Shoutcast servers?
I don't think there is not a way to burst to iOS devices with chunked cupertino streams from Wowza. I'm pretty sure the chunks go out over http without any throttling, i.e., as fast as the network will carry them.
