    Question VOD Streaming from AWS WOWZA EC2 Instance (JW Player 6)

    Hi,

    We have some videos that we have uploaded to an S3 bucket in AWS and we also have a WOWZA EC2 Instance running in AWS. We are able to play the videos with JW Player 6 using RTMP as shown below but we can't get them to play using HTTP:// or HTTPS://

    Is there a way that I can do this using the WOWZA Instance?

    Example below works with RTMP:
    <div id='my-video'></div>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
    jwplayer('my-video').setup({
    file: 'rtmp://[aws-wowza-instance-public-dns]/vods3/mp4:amazons3/bucket-name/video.mp4',
    image: 'testImage.jpg',
    width: '640',
    height: '360'
    });
    </script>

    Example below not working with HTTP:// or HTTPS://
    <div id='my-video'></div>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
    jwplayer('my-video').setup({
    file: 'http://[aws-wowza-instance-public-dns]:1935/vods3/mp4:amazons3/bucket-name/video.mp4',
    image: 'testImage.jpg',
    width: '640',
    height: '360'
    });
    </script>

    Hi Kevlar,

    I think you need the MediaCache AddOn to stream from S3 to Wowza:
    How to get MediaCache AddOn (scale video on demand streaming)

    There are settings specific to S3 documented and in place in the MediaCache.xml file

    Thanks salvadore, I'll look into that. It is currently streaming from S3 using RTMP though.
