I have a setup in which I have a local smil file that is attempting to access an mp4 file from AWS S3. I can get the mp4 to stream from s3 using the VodEdge but I cannot seem to get streaming to work with my local smil file.
My S3 does use credentials which are stored in my MediaCache instance and again, I’ve validated that I can stream when attempting to access the mp4 file directly.
I read through much documentation and have mixed feedback on whether this can be done. It seems that this plugin (RandomAccessReaderMediaCacheLocalContent) is supposed to handle this exact circumstance: https://www.wowza.com/docs/media-cache-implementation-that-will-first-try-to-access-content-locally-before-getting-it-from-a-remote-source-mediacachelocalcontent#examples7
So, for example, I have a file living in S3 under
My smil file lives in my local conent directory (
/usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine/content) and looks like this:
<smil><body><switch><video begin="1.293" dur="3284.187" src="mp4:s3devtest/_definst_/mybucket/path/to/value/1234.mp4" audio-bitrate="196608"></video></switch></body></smil>
BUT NOTE: I have tried the following variations for the src value in the smil file:
The error I’m receiving is:
which shows that it is looking in my content directory where the smil file lives and not the s3 bucket.
I’m attaching a screenshot of my Media Cache setup (sans credentials) as well as a screenshot of my custom config values for the RandomAccessReaderMediaCacheLocalContent plugin
