I've been able to setup live streaming using Wowza's package solution on the AWS Marketplace in the past without much difficulty. I was able to use the JW Player to create a landing page for various clients to be able to automatically pick up the stream of their choice.
Now, I'm trying out a CloudFront configuration now, so that I can accommodate a few hundred viewers that will be sourced from Europe. I'm not sure if something changes with AWS's package or JW Player, but I have been having difficulty getting the HDS (Adobe) stream to work. AWS returns a link ending in .f4m. I use that for the HDS stream, but JW Player doesn't appear to be able to load that stream.
A new requirement has emerged, for us to provide an embeddable player, like with YouTube, Vimeo, etc players. This is to allow us to host the stream, but have our client embed the video onto their landing page for the event.
There appears to be a lot of examples/solutions for static video, pulled from an S3 bucket, but not so much for live events.
Can anyone suggest tips for sorting out the HDS stream, and/or a player to use, which supports multiple client stream direction (HLS, HDS, Smooth Stream) and is embeddable (iframe)?
Thanks in advance!
