    Default VOD Cache Server

    I'm using VoD service on my wowza servers
    I want if a server has request for VoD , first of all it checks if that vod is available on other wowza server caches?, if it was not available then check the Main VOD Origin
    is it possible to connect MediaCache of all Wowza servers ?

    How can i config my wowza servers for this purpose ?

    Hello there.

    With MediaCache, the origin is a web server or a network share, not another Wowza server. This guide will show you how to set this up:

    Thanks for your reply
    I had used that guide and the vod service works great with web server origin
    Is there any way to use cached data in a wowza server in another wowza server ?
    if its possible to set priority for accessing multiple VoD Origin servers for each vod application?

    David, sorry for the delayed reply.

    You can setup multiple VOD origins in MediaCache.

    I am not 100% sure what you are trying to do, but I suppose you could setup MediaCache on multiple servers and if you wanted one to be more accessed than another you could set that up at the DNS priority level.

    Kind regards,
