Create Video Archives


I am using Wowza Streaming Engine, and have over 30k videos in the server. In order to reduce loads, I would like to archive the older videos - perhaps manually.

Currently, videos are in the ‘stream’ folder. I want to move older videos to a diffrent location but the videos must eb able to play when user accesses the ‘archive’ webpage which lists all archived videos.

I truly hope I explained properly.

Kindly advice and thank you!

Here at Wowza, we would suggest that depending on the load you are seeing you may need to use MediaCache or MediaCache + faster storage for the MediaCache to use for caching frequently played media.
You could then store the 30k library on a slower disk and use an SSD (Solid State Drive) for your caching drive to improve on read speeds if you have a lot of playback requests.

If you’re not familiar with Wowza’s MediaCache, it is a tool to allow you to store your resources in several cloud platforms like AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud and easily access them for playback.

Here is some documentation on it for you @Rahman Ramesh

Thank you! I will surely look into it
