    Default VOD HTTP Live Streaming

    Hi,

    Is it possible to stream VOD file as HTTP Live Streaming for VOD? Something like during playing, we force client to download limited chunks instead of downloading whole chunks at the begining?
    I tried to stream using Cupertino streaming but i think client also download the whole chunks.

    Thanks for your help,
    Huy.

    Hello,

    Since the VOD file has a known duration, Wowza is presenting an end tag at the end of the chunklist sent to the playback client. All the chunks references are available in the initial chunklist.
    If you want to implement an HTTT live stream behavior for the playback of VOD streams, you will need to implement it at the player side and have the player request only the needed chunks, whenever they are required.

    Hi Zoran,

    I also think it belongs to client behavior, but my work can only effect on server-side.
    Thanks for your support,

    Huy.

    Hi,

    I have sent this use case to our product management team to take it into consideration as a possible feature for a future Wowza release.
