    Default Path to recorded files

    Hello there,

    I have the option set to record live streamed files, and it is working. I can see the .mp4 files in the /content/ directory.

    I would like to setup my JWPlayer instances to be able to playback these recorded files on demand. Is the /content/ folder publicly accessible? If so, what path should I use to access these files in the player?

    If it is not accessible, do you recommend that I:
    1. Change the settings in the manager to record these to a different location (e.g. an S3 bucket (is this possible))
    2. Set up a script to copy these recorded files to a different location (S3, my server, whatever)
    3. Make the directory accessible, which I believe is possible using instructions in the EC2 user docs


    Thanks!

    Hi,
    The content folder is the default location for playback in a vod application.

    You should, for example, be able to playback as an RTMP stream in JW player with the following URL syntax:

    rtmp://WowzaIPaddress:1935/vod/MyRecordedFile.mp4

    Ah ok, so the /vod/ directory basically points to the /content/ directory, then? Thanks for the pointer, I'll check it out and report back!

    Hi,
    Actually /vod/ is the application, and the vod application is configured by default to find files in the [install-dir]/content folder.
