Restreaming from Akamai - periodic streamTimeout issue
We are currently running Wowza streaming engine v4.1.2 under a testing license. We are testing it for live relaying of Akamai RTMP streams.
We've set up a 'Stream File' to pull the Akamai RTMP stream URL (stream file called AKA.stream), then connected to this stream file using a liverepeater mediacaster type.
Everything starts to work happily and I can pull the stream into a test player via the wowa relay RTMP URL. All is good.
The issue we are struggling with is that, like clockwork, every 3 hours and 10(ish) minutes, the connection to the source Akamai RTMP stream URL resets, which causes players/applications connected to the wowza stream to disconnect.
