AMLST generate 404 when Medialist is empty


We are using a custom AMLST module to generate MultiBitrate Stream.
Something similar to

If the medialist return by the module is empty, Wowza will return an empty m3u8.

Is there a way to get a 404 HTTP Status and to override cache header set in the Vhost configuration ?

A 404 Error will prevent proxy server to cache the empty m3u8.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Stephane,

This has been addressed in ticket #228959, but I am posting the response here as well for others.

Under Root/Application/HTTPStreamer properties container, add:



Is param “cupertinoAllowNotFoundOnEmptyMediaList” work with custom AMLST module
in live stream app?

And what wowza version will work with this param?

Yes, it should work with AMLST modules as well. I have tested this on a 4.6.x and 4.7.x.
