How to set up MediaCache to stream filenames without extensions

Note: This article is for an older Wowza™ product or technology that either has been updated or is no longer supported. For the current version of this article, see the Wowza Streaming Engine Media Cache User's Guide.
To modify MediaCache to not automatically add file extensions to cache items, edit [install-dir]/conf/MediaCache.xml and set the addFileExtensionIfNeeded property that's pre-defined in the <MediaCache>/<Properties> container to false.
Note: The addFileExtensionIfNeeded property is available in MediaCache build 989 or greater (see version.txt of MediaCache package).
