    Follow this guide:

    And be sure to use a licKey (license key) AMIs because the devpay AMIs do not support premium addons:

    I am still pretty new to wowza and really new to Amazon services. We are moving our data over to their servers and running in to some problems. We originally recorded live streams using nDVR and archived them.

    On our local server we had an application call dvr and it dumped the archive into /dvr under root of wowza server.
    We moved the application and /dvr folder over to EC2 and its under /home/wowza/applications/dvr/Applications.xml and /home/wowza/dvr/_definst_/morning.sdp.0 (for an example of one of the files)

    Then using silverlight we tried to connect to the stream at:
    http://ec2-54-242-152-138.compute-1....p/Manifest?dvr

    But we get an error about the manifest.

    Locally it works at:
    http://blacklabimaging.net:1935/dvr/...p/Manifest?dvr

    I'm sure I have something wrong with the folders and in trying to read up on this... I find myself getting more confused at what can be done with DVR and EC2

    Unless I'm missing it... it would be great if there was a complete guide for nDVR setup using EC2 and storage on S3. I found some things saying that you cannot use S3 for storing or moving DVR recordings to?

    Any thoughts or recommendations would be very helpful. We need nDVR working in EC2 with some kind of archive to watch the files from at another time... either it be S3 or EBS or on the EC2 instance itself... I'm not quite sure where to go.

    Thanks!

    Did you add the dvrstreamingpacketizer to the EC2 /conf/dvr/Applicationx.xml ?

    I would suggest EBS volume for fast read/write and so data is separate from the instance. You can just point the dvr storage to the EBS volume

    You can use MediaCache with dvr to cache chunks on an edge, but I don't think there is a good way to use it with S3

    Hi Richard ... is it still not recommended to use nDVR on S3 due to write/read performance, or has Wowza worked something out with Amazon on this regards?
    So far, I record nDVR on instace itself or on EBS with no problem ... just wondering if S3 would work

    No, nothing has changed. It will not work well enough. EBS volumes are a good option.
