Does UVG support streaming media or just progressive download?

Thanks,
Chas

It's easy to implement. Search for .FLV .NET Streaming at google.

This article seems easy to implement, will try soon with UVG:

Rodrigo, I really really appreciate your information, this seems to be a cool solution, I'll integrate it in UVG 2.

thank you!

Did this happen? I have a need for a streaming option and would like to use UVG if possible.

oh, I forgot to post a follow up here, I tried to do it in UVG 3, but the solution Rodrigo suggested doesn't work, the video doesn't play at all. I don't know why.

UVG 4 support rtmp. it can either play vdieos you uploaded to RTMP, or record videos from your webcam if you flash media server.

Thats great. Any advice on how to stream H264 from CloudFront? The documentation only really mentions rtmp or streaming in relation to the webcam.

at first, you know how to use CloudFront in UVG, don't you? there is a chapter about this in the user guide.

seconally, just use rtmp to replace http protocal in /DesktopModules/UltraVideoGallery/Texts/CloudFront.txt, then UVG will use the rtmp feature offered by CloudFront.

I need some help with CloudFront. I have a test video on Amazon’s S3 and I have setup Cloudfront for streaming. The video plays on S3 with the direct link as a download but not streaming with Cloudfront.
https://s3.amazonaws.com/otahq-it/WallStreetShadowMarket.mp4

I have updated the CloudFront.txt file:
Bucket Name -> Distribution Name
or
Another Bucket -> rtmp://Distribution Name
...

otahq-it -> rtmp://s1lbft4mxg76ed.cloudfront.net

Then I changed the link in the video module to the cloudfront link below but it does not play:
rtmp://s1lbft4mxg76ed.cloudfront.net/WallStreetShadowMarket.mp4
Am I doing this correctly or am I missing a step?

Also, we have a lot of videos (250MB to 400MB each, total of all videos over 25 GB) I plan to upload so I will need to put them in a number of Buckets (Amazon 5 GB Buck limit). In the CloudFront.txt can I have more then on Bucket listed?
Thanks,
Lewis

Followup:
Instead of using the link feature to link to videos I uploaded on amazon s3 I uploaded the videos on the DNN server (UVG) and the Scheduler moved the videos to Amazon and the videos played. In the CloudFront.txt file I changed the Bucket to add the amazonaws.com and my test videos now play but still do not stream, they download to the browsers temp files.
otahq-it.s3.amazonaws.com -> rtmp://s1lbft4mxg76ed.cloudfront.net

It looks like the only part not working is the Cloudfront Streaming.

the cloudfront replacement feature is available for UVG managed videos, if you upload it by your self UVG is not able to replace the url to use rtmp.

That is very helpful!
I uploaded a small video that seems to stream fine.

Two other questions: I am able to upload mp4 videos but not f4v. Is there any way to upload f4v videos?
I added the file extension under the Host Settings but it is not in the Supported formats in Add Video Wizard and I cannot upload videos with the .f4v extension.

My other question is about embedded code. Some of the video files I am uploading are large 800MB and 1600MB and they upload onto the server (UVG) but they are not moved to Amazon. The Scheduler just says “tried to move videos to Amazon S3” and the videos are still in the UltraVideoGallery\Host folder.

On an html page this code works streaming the video for Amazon Cloudfront:
<embed
src='http://www.bizmodules.net/../assets/jwplayer/player.swf'
width='720'
height='480'
bgcolor='#ffffff'
allowscriptaccess='always'
allowfullscreen='true'
flashvars='file=MarketTiming.mp4&streamer=rtmp://s1lbft4mxg76ed.cloudfront.net/cfx/st/mp4:MarketTiming.mp4/'
/>
But I am having trouble with the object code for the Ultra Video Gallery Add Video module. Do you have a sample of the object code I need to Add video from embed code?

Thank you again for all your help.

I was able to find the embed code to Stream Video with Amazon CloudFront.

Using the information on the link below I creating the page to a video I had uploaded and configured to stream on Amazon then I copied the embed <> code provided. I then used the UVG embed option for adding a new video.
http://aws.amazon.com/articles/CloudFront/4101?_encoding=UTF8&jiveRedirect=1

My test video is a large 1.5 GB mp4 video that streams fine.

if f4v is supported in Host Setings, you can upload it even it's not displayed in supported formats list. UVG should be able to serve it.

glad to know the streaming works.

Can't seem to get cloudfront to stream properly. What is the proper setting for Cloudfront? I have a bucket set and cloudfront distribution set.
If I use the setting as stated in the text file and use fiddler to track the URL, it's repeating the streaming server name. For example,

abcbucket - > rmtp://mystream.cloudfront.net

It shows up on the URL as mystream.cloudfront.net.cloudfront.net.
What is the correct setting?

the core ncmanager is no longer necessary.

yes, you can use rtmp.
