Thread: Media Cache best practise between Origin and Edge

    Default Media Cache best practise between Origin and Edge

    Hi all,

    Thank you for reading mmy post.

    Here's my current architecture

    User use web based uploader, upload raw MP4 to storage server
    Encoder will auto encode to H264/AAC using HandBrakeCLI
    Video stored as file in /mbr/XXXXXX/500_kbps.mp4
    Alias the folder /mbr/* as http://<server domain>/mbr/*
    So the video can be seen as HTTP
    And this is located on client datacenter

    Using AWS:EC2, fired up a wowza 4 server
    Setup up mediacache using http/ prefix and http protocol
    Setup secureToken to protect the vod
    setup HLS & HDS

    So far so good with avg concurrent arounf 100 users. But is there a better practise than this ?
    Should I install another WSE4 at ORIGIN and serve dvr chunks instead ?

    Please guide me. Thank you

    Looking at your setup description, it looks like you are operating a video on demand platform. The nDVR feature is only available for live streams.
    The MediaCache prefix name you are using is not linked to a specific protocol. You can name it to "myCoolPrefixName" and Wowza Streaming Engine will still use HTTP protocol to access the video files store on your origin web server.
    You can find more resources by visiting the "Scaling with Wowza Media Cache" forum article.
