I've been talking to Highwinds CDN to do final delivery of our HLS streams to end users. Currently we are using Wowza 3.0 to transrate and deliver our HLS streams to end users. All is working well with this but we are ramping up our viewers and are looking at plans to scale up delivery. Highwinds quoted a really good rate which is cheaper than running a bunch of edge servers so I'm trying to see if there is a way to use Wowza as the origin server and Highwinds are the edge server.
After speaking with Highwinds tech support they sent over this information: "The origin must generate "clean" manifests that do not interfere with the CDN's ability to cache objects for standard HTTP delivery. Some origins (such as the Wowza Media Server) are known to inject data into the manifest that disrupts effective caching." Does anyone know if there is a fix to make this work? Thanks in advance!
