Been webcasting for a few years now and have almost exclusively used WSE as a stand alone server, not using a CDN.
Okay, help me understand a few things:
I have been using JW 6 using HLS with excellent results. This is going to clients who are watching on mostly desktops but some mobile devices. Basically, no one is getting RTMP.
Can a CDN lower my costs for distribution? When doing testing to Cloudfront, Keycdn, and MaxCDN, all three give me additional connections at my Wowza server (which I don't want because that means i'm paying for the CDN AND AWS data transfer). Obviously this is pulling from Wowza. Pulling was quite easy to setup.
So it seems that what I really need to be doing is pushing, but this seems a WHOLE LOT MORE complicated when I look at the Wowza guide here in the forum. (Dont want to start amending code and what I see the text document is not what I see in the guide.) It's also very CDN specific but what if I don't want to use akamai?
Is pushing what I want to be doing? Can I do this? - Push a single http stream to a cdn and have all the distribution come from the CDN, not the Wowza instance.
I really do appreciate any insight that you may have.
