    Default how to stream youtube and kaltura hosted videos using wowza instance on my EC2

    Hi Team,

    I have a setup where i am running an instance of wowza on amazon EC2 and have some of my videos hosted at kaltura (again an instance of EC2) and youtube each.
    Now i am able to play the sample.mp4 file from the test app given by wowza but i am not sure how to use the same rtmp port to transcode the youtube or kaltura media. I am using rtmp://[my-public-domain]/vod as the Server and mp4:www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJ8YMz33h0U as the stream but its showing me an error as could not find the media to stream.

    Any Suggestions?

    I'm not sure about youtube integration, but if the Kaltura content is on a web server, available over HTTP in anyway you can use MediaCache

    Thanks Richard,

    As per the link u have shared it seems to transcode something on the fly i probably need to add the MediaCache package. Cant the same package work for youtube as well, i mean its again running over http.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm really not sure how to re-stream youtube content. Do they allow it? If so, they probably have a way to do it, some way that is documented by them. I doubt they allow it though.
