    Default Download Costs

    If we use Amazon S3 for our video file storage and Amazon EC2 to run Wowza, when a video is viewed by a user is there an additional cost for the EC2 instance to download the video from S3 storage, or is the only data transfer cost the EC2 download data transfer cost?

    I think there are bandwidth charges when Wowza gets content from S3. Of course it is cached locally when using the vods3 configuration, so that usage is minimized.
