I would like to use Wowza VOD origin as a MediaCache source for VOD edge applications. I read all the guides and i know you suggest to use any http storage as a source.
But as long as VOD origin can provide mp4 over http, it can be the source as well? I would like to use Wowza to control edges access to the files in storage and do some other custom job, so using VOD origin looks like an option for me.
How can i achieve it, and is there any serious overhead / advantage / disadvantage?
If its not possible, whats the purpose of VOD origin at all?
