Ok, here is my setup: Encoding with the Monarch HDX, sending to Wowza, transcoding to source + 3 transcoded bit rates, sending to Akamai. When viewing downstream in Akamai, I am only seeing source, and no transcoded streams. NOTE: this is the same transcode/transrate settings I use for everything else, so I know they work. But apparently the Monarch HDX sends something else along that gets included in the transcoded bit rates that has issues.
I just got off the phone with Akamai tech support, and here is the error they are seeing:
The onMetadata Sent by the encoder for the transcoded bitrates is not properly formatted which is causing the failures on Akamai.
