Does Wowza Streaming Cloud support hosting MPEG DASH VOD and LIVE contents?

Hi,

We’re evaluating Wowza Streaming Cloud product as a streaming server option to test our HLS & DASH streaming solution. We support both VOD and LIVE profiles in both HLS and DASH.

Based on my quick reading I understand that the Wowza Streaming Cloud product supports hosting HLS VOD and LIVE contents, but I didn’t find any mention about MPEG DASH content hosting.

Does Wowza Streaming Cloud product support hosting of MPEG DASH VOD and LIVE contents?

Thanks,

Prem

Prem,

Thank you for inquiring about he Wowza Cloud product. Since we are in our initial launch phase, not all the same features of our Wowza Streaming Engine are integrated in the Cloud product yet.

Video On Demand is not currently available, nor is MPEG-Dash playback.

For a current list of features, known issues, etc, please visit our Wowza Streaming Cloud release notes page.

We have many additional features coming to Wowza Cloud.

Thanks for the inquiry,

Mac

Someting new about VOD ?

Not yet… but I know we are closer now than we were when this post was submitted. Keep an eye on the release notes and the “What’s New” area of the Wowza Cloud main dashboard.
