Want to push HLS to CDN where source is IIS Smooth
So far I love the product.
I just want to share a scenario and ask the community if this might be possible.
We have an internal corporate webcast solution with encoders that work with IIS Smoothstreaming to all our datacenters. We would like to push that stream to a CDN (Akamai) in two formats: HLS and Smooth where the origin would be IIS Smooth.
AFAIK, that is not possible today with Wowza, source needs to be RTMP-type and push support is limited (IIS Smooth push is not supported)
Does anyone of you guys know a way to solve my dilemma?
in this case, you have to configure Akamai to pull from the origin, instead of pushing to it.
Akamai in particular has different way to receive streams in order to produce HLS and Smooth outputs. I'm sure they support RTMP for that. But in case they don't, you can ask them to pull from your IIS origin. I always like this option the most.
I don't see in your ecosystem where Wowza fits in, unless I understood your setup wrongly.
