Live HTTP origin

please consider a configuration where Wowza can be an HTTP origin server for the AWS Cloudfront, or other HTTP CDN. We need scalable delivery of HTTP streams and the best way to do that is with a global CDN. This works great with FMS and posts in the forum go back years asking for this feature. I hate to sound pushy but as a developer we need to make decisions based on real development and this is a critical feature.

Please merely respond and say yes, and a date or no, go away. A LOT of people want this feature.

Great product but without an HTTP origin feature it will be very hard for us to use your cool features.

We are working on Cloudfront integration and documentation. I don’t have a time frame, but it is in progress.


We will contact you directly re HTTP origin.

Any rough eta? We are hesitant to invest coding assets unless we have some light at the end of the tunnel. We like what we see so the fact you guys are working on an origin solution is great.


Has there been any progress on this?
