Connect a CDN

Overview

OvenStudio LLHLS provides an easy connection to AWS CloudFront as CDN with a single click to distribute your streams. You can use an Origin Server and an Edge Server in OvenStudio LLHLS.
Origin Server is the primary server where OvenStudio LLHLS is installed on AWS and ingresses media sources through your encoder. While you can share your streams using Origin Server, it's not ideal if you need to distribute with a large audience.
Edge Server is a Content Delivery Network (CDN) that allows OvenStudio LLHLS to connect with AWS CloudFront or a CDN for your Edge to spread the media sources received by the Origin Server to multiple locations. If your audience is more larger than tens of hundreds, you will need an Edge Server, and you can add more Edge Servers as needed to accommodate an unlimited number of viewers.
If you are using AWS CloudFront to deliver your live stream, you will be charged a separate usage fee.
