Media servers running Wowza Streaming Engine™ software can send live and video on demand (VOD) streams directly to players that support the Apple HLS, Adobe HDS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, and MPEG-DASH HTTP streaming protocols. When the number of player connections is likely to exceed the limits of a single Wowza media server, the HTTP streams can easily be scaled by using a special HTTP Origin mode application in Wowza Streaming Engine. When HTTP Origin mode is enabled, regular third-party HTTP caching proxies that are configured to cache video content can re-stream the content from the Wowza Streaming Engine application.
