Hello there, please bear with me as I’m new Any help you might provide will be appreciated.
Suppose I have two mp4 files both 30 minutes long. They’re part1 and part2 of a single show so I’d like to serve this content to my users as if it was an uninterrupted 1-hour long video. Something like a playlist but not really because if they were to download the video, they would download it as a single mp4 file. I’m aware I can just concatenate the two mp4 files with ffmpeg but I’m asking if there’s another way. Something like a “logic” or “virtual” video file that just instructs Wowza on which physical files it can find the bits of the show.
I would use this “logic video file” to also do the opposite: i.e. isolate an interesting clip of 1 minute from part1.mp4 and publish on my website as if it was stored on its own mp4 file (users see a duration of 1 minute in their JWPlayer).
I would use this for:
- Partition large video files to make them more manageable on disk;
- Avoid duplication of bits, thus lowering hosting costs.
Is it possibile via the Rest API? Or the Java API? Thanks in advance.
