We have been working with Wowza for EC2 and would like to source our video content from our Amazon S3 account. So far, we have been unsuccessful in getting private content to play. I have followed several different pieces of documentation/forum threads/etc. to get this working, but to no avail. The error we are receiving is "Failed to play amazons3/XXXX/XXXX.mp4; stream not found."
Under one set of instructions, you are instructed to use S3FS, which I successfully configured and can access via the filesystem, but am not able to play any of the content as I don't know exactly how to "call" the content URL/Path. In another set of instructions, you are instructed to edit the MediaCache.xml file and enter your Amazon security credentials for S3 private content access. I performed this edit and restarted Wowza, but no luck. This brings up a question of the use of startup packages which is also where this change was mentioned. Do I have to use a startup package and restart the server with the MediaCache.xml file set up with our credentials, or can I just edit the MediaCache.xml file already in place in the /conf directory and restart the server to have the changes take??
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
