As far as i understand reading all these articles:
docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/distribution-rtmp.html docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/distribution-overview.html docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/Tutorials.html docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/wowza-creating-stack.html docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/distribution-rtmp-creating.html docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/distribution-rtmp-values-specify.html docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/AMS5.0SubscribingToAMS.html docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/LiveStreamingAdobeMediaServer5.0.html
And in particular the following:
It looks like it is NOT possible to mirror a live streaming RTMP using CloudFront with a Web or RTMP Distribution on TCP 80 or TCP 1935, since those distributions are based the delivery/mirroring/caching of static files for both players and video files (FLV).
The support on the live streaming is offered by Amazon via CloudFormation stack and Adobe Media Server or WOWZA integration, but in our scenario the client already has its own Red5 streaming server, already working and set up.
How is it possibile to use CloudFront to mirror a Live Streaming RTMP connection on TCP 80 or 1935, by using an origin server and RTMP flow that is running on a Red5, instead of delivering a static FLV file from an S3 hosting ?
I would like to understand if this solution is supported by Amazon and where to find the knowledge base to perform such configuration.
Basically, in our scenario we already have the RTMP exposed on the public web, we only need AWS to cache it through CloudFront and serve to other clients.
We want to try doing a Web Distribution only for the Flash Player which will be downloaded by the clients to see the streaming, and we would like the player to point to AWS CDN mirroring URL for the live streaming.
Is this possible and how ?
Thank you very much, Best Regards
