We have a have a series of lots of small live events which will be present on Level3 CDN. We'd like to set up wowza to act as content orgin to provide hls/hds streams.
So in the normal case I'd set up a .stream file and insert the remote cdn rtmp address. Then use the CDN origin feature so that wowza acts a http source for HLS.
However, the above method requires either the streammanager to start or the StartUpStreams to be defined. The issue is that they arent continuous streams but random ad-hoc events. I need the restream - segmentation to be triggered by the HLS request hitting wowza.
I am using a single tier architecture as I understand this isnt achievable in origin-edge configs. I have tried investigating the stream name alias bit cant seem to get it to work. Any help?
