Dynamically generate smil file for multibitrate.
I wanna stream smil file from my server. When playing on my server
http://[myserver]/smil:sample.smil/manifest.f4m i have stored the sample.smil file on the content folder and it works fine. Now am gonna use the smil file for 1000 streams means each and every time i cant create a smil file. so how can i dynamically create smil file and where should i store that file ? and in the above url(smil:sample.smil) how wowza knows to play the smil file from the content folder?
Yes, the .smil file will be on the web server instead of the content folder, and the URL will change, it will use a MediaCache prefix. Details and step by step instructions for setting up MediaCache are included in the package. It is generally used for vod streaming, but it will do what you describe if the Application.xml /StreamType is "live"
