Thread: HLS + Mpeg Dash Live Edge Repeater also required on the origin

    Default HLS + Mpeg Dash Live Edge Repeater also required on the origin

    Hi there when configuring a live edge repeater for HLS and Mpeg Dash packetizers i've discovered the origin also requires the packetizers enabled for repeating to work.

    ie wowza documentation requires this

    <LiveStreamPacketizers>cupertinostreamingrepeater, mpegdashstreamingrepeater, sanjosestreamingrepeater, smoothstreamingrepeater</LiveStreamPacketizers>

    It seems it is pulling HLS + Mpeg Dash from the origin which is also handling encoders publishing to it and repeating the RTMP stream between edge / origin.

    I have also noticed packetizing is happening by default even without clients connected therefore may be causing quite a bit of load on the origin server ?

    How is it possible to just do packetizing on the edge server ? Do I just use the original config

    <LiveStreamPacketizers>cupertinostreamingpacketizer,smoothstreamingpacketizer,sanjosestreamingpacket izer,mpegdashstreamingpacketizer</LiveStreamPacketizers>


    Also if there is a way to turn on packetizing on demand for live streaming that could be good ?

    Let me know.

    Default

    Hi,

    If looking at re-streaming HLS or DASH on the edge then you would enable those packetizers on the origin and set the equivalent repeaters on the edge. The origin will continue packetizing while the encoder is active. The edge will pull in those chunks when a client connects and starts playback.
