Notes

  • CDN Live service transcodes origin stream to 5 streaming protocols to provide compatibility with all devices, please refer to Supported CDN streaming protocols and formats for more details.
  • Please note that you can stream multiple streams (determined by different stream names) through a single CDN Live service.
  • CDN Live service does not transcode a single bitrate origin stream to a muti bitrate CDN stream. CDN stream is published in the same bitrate as the origin stream. Read how to simultaneously publish more origin streams and create a multi bitrate CDN stream.
  • Please note that for transcoding to HLS and HDS protocols via CDN Live service with Pull Publishing it is required that your origin streaming server is Wowza.
  • CDN Live service does not record live streams (DVR).
  • Please note that except query string variables defined by Token Authentication CDN Live service does not support query string variables, e.g. http://12345.r.cdnsun.net/12345/_definst_/mystream/playlist.m3u8?myvariable=value.
