From what I've read, Wowza still does not officially support CloudFront. However, I've also read that some people have done this successfully. I am 95% of the way there but hoped that someone on the forum might help with the last 5%.
I have a medium EC2 instance running the DevPay version of Wowza 3.5. I have followed the instructions to set the instance up as HTTP Origin server. I have a CloudFront download distribution pointing to the origin on port 1935 (instead of the default, 80) and a minimum TTL of 2 seconds.
Here is the problem: HLS works.. mostly. The only thing is that the video skips back every 5 - 15 seconds. If I hit the m3u8 playlist directly on the EC2 instance (bypassing CF) it works beautifully. So the skipping backwards problem is definitely a CF problem... I just don't know how to fix it.
Any help or clues would be great!
PS.. it *seems* to be only iOS devices. HLS on my Android is ok.
