    Question Setup issue, wide area streaming

    Hi,

    We are already a satisfied customer, with 10+ Wowza servers running.
    Now we face the following problem.
    For one of our US customers, we want to stream videos all over the US without a big delay or buffering.
    We already have a server on the central part of the US (Kansas City, Missouri) running Wowza with 4+TB of videofiles.
    But the customers in the West (for example LA) have a big buffering problem, depending on the moment of the day.
    We really need to solve this, so I was looking at Amazon Cloudfront with an S3 storage and a Wowza AMI.

    But Iím not sure if this solves our problem, because the Wowza instance is at a fixed location, and not at the CDN Endpoint ?
    If I install the Wowza AMI is de US West region, Iíll probably get problems with buffering with the US east customers.
    Or am I wrong, and is the streaming also done over the Amazon Cloudfront?

    Is there a be solution for this problem ?

    Erwin,

    Actually the location of the Wowza origin will not matter in Cloudfront distribution. Cloudfront caches content in its network as necessary.

    OK, and is there a way i can "see" from where it is streaming?
    Because I did the setup in Cloudfront for worldwide streaming, original wowza is setup in West US (Oregon)

    When I try to stream from Europe, there is still la lot of bufffering, so I'm not sure it's streaming from the nearest CDN.
    We use VOD and a silverlight player.

    This is the Manifest I use :

    We have no insight into Cloudfront distribution details at that level. It might just be a higher bitrate stream than the available bandwidth at the client you are testing. Otherwise, if it is a Cloudfront network/distribution issue, you would have to talk to them directly about that. I would try a very low bitrate stream first.
