I’m trying to setup Wowza + JWPlayer to allow streaming of VOD files (from S3 servers).
Let’s say my file is called “video1.f4v” and is located at rtmp://server:1935/vod/mp4:amazons3/bucket/video1.f4v.
Is there a way to setup Wowza so it generates different versions (e.g. 240p, 360p, 720p) of a stream, which I can add to my (JWplayer) video player instance? Does Wowza save the files after encoding them the first time somewhere or will it have to transcode everytime a user requests the file?
Or do I have to encode all 3 versions by myself, upload it to s3 and then create a custom playlist for JWplayer?
