Custom Chunk Ids, or what is calculateChunkIDBasedOnTimecode?
I've been trying to set up a CloudFront distribution with two wowza servers behind and elastic load balancer ( two servers for security, a primary and backup stream location). All is well, the only problem is not being able to get the Chunk ID's to match over both servers.
I've had a look through the forums and found two LiveStreamPacketizer parameters:
.. that from their name would give me what I want, but I can find no documentation for them. My chunks for live stream are not being changed when enabling these parameters. Can you point me in the direction of the documentation for these two, or if there's anything particular about the timecode/other settings that I need use.
The alternative (and to be honest, more attractive idea) is that the chunk id's are based on the wowza system time - then as long as I can keep the time in sync I can send source to any server and know that the chunk id's will be the same.
Email sent with the attached files. I can see now what you mean regarding the chunkId continuing if the encoder is interrupted (rather than the expected generating the chunkId from ether the embedded timecode or the system time)
Wit the cookie system, will this weight the ELB to one of the servers rather than the other?
