Thread: VOD --- rtmp with hls adaptive fallback

  1. #1

    Default VOD --- rtmp with hls adaptive fallback

    hi, we are using JW Player and serving rtmp via wowza for Flash/Web/Desktops

    when user comes to page on iOS how do we fallback to ---> HLS adaptive with 128bit encryption ?

    There are two ways of doing AES encryption for HLS:

    Internal method (you probably want this):
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....ternal-method)

    External method:
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....ternal-method)

    There is nothing special to do concerning JW Player for this, just setup as usual.

    so regarding 128 bit HLS to iOS, my wowza host said this:

    "An alternative to on demand encoding done by server (which requires high sever resources on each access), is to upload videos already encoded on server. "


    if I do this: http://www.encoding.com/how_can_i_en...iphone_streams

    is that internal or external method?

    Hi
    The method you provided isn't the internal or external method, see the links Richard provided above.
    We can only provide support on the Wowza internal or external method and do not provide support for any foreign methods.

    hi

    i understand that wowza is not involved if using encoded files.

    but is the statement correct

    "requires high sever resources on each access"

    for one of both of these ...or incorrect

    Internal method (you probably want this):
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....ternal-method)

    External method:
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....ternal-method)

    if it places extras server demand that means extra $$$ and dev time

    I was told this about HLS with 128:

    "even the big time companies like hulu or HBO dont do 128 because HLS is not enough of a piracy target. and this is because even with no 128, its very hard to playback all the files."

    dont know if thats true but im now tring to find any sort or percentage or stat about how make who serve hls are actually going the extra step??

    dont want to waste a bunch of time and resources if its uncommon or not really needed

    how much overhead is added to server requirements if using 128?

    I do not know. You should be able to turn it off and on to compare

    "Use Wowza software to create adaptive bitrate streams on your own or choose Encoding.com's cloud service with pre-built transcoding profiles for Wowza to simplify ABR even further."

    so there is no info you know of anywhere where managers have faced the choice and decide which is most effective for them?
