My how time flys. Jorrit & Heshan have been busy! Glad to see so much progress being made.
Question- Should the S3 CNAME / CDN field pass the new prefix to the player so that the media is called from CloudFront instead of directly from the bucket? Or did we skip over some more player integrations? We have seen the JW Player CloudFront integration for Streaming, and see that we may need to provide an extra VAR for RTMP, but should not for standard non-dynamic downloads.
We have Video, Zencoder & AWS SDK (with signed URLS) working swimmingly, but have noticed a lag with some of the larger videos, so we thought we would take advantage of the CloudFront CDN option i the AWS SDK, and it would re-form the links passed to the Video module to have the CloudFront distribution as the reference. We created a download distribution (we want to stay iOS firendly till we can figure out how to trick JW Player for D7 to player RTMP in flash & download for iOS) and set the domain name in the CDN area of the S3 settings, as well as configured the distribution to pull from the S3 bucket and use all the right credentials, as well as sign URLs.
Check with you folks first, as you know best how the media URL is stored and passed to the player. We will bounce this over to the S3 / AWS SDK side depending on your response.
Cheers, and thanks again for the amazing work.
