Steam Stop - Wowza CDN
We're having problems with the Wowza/Akamai CDN. Basically, with the wowza player you need to use for the CDN, it causes the stream to stop as it's not a constant stream (the CDN doesn't like this). I'm guessing this is each time a video file is loaded so the stream cuts.. then it needs to be re-established with the CDN which causes this delay and buffering.
The videos we're using are 2mins then 30 seconds in length one after another constantly for 24 hours. The 30 second video is randomly selected using a MySQL function with 15 seconds remaining of the 2min video.
Is there anyway we can maintain a constant stream so that it doesn't constantly drop out?
You might want to look into the "
ModuleLoopUntilLive" as this can be used to fill the time between videos and keep the stream and Push Publishing/Stream Target active. You could even create a black/silent video for this purpose.
