Streaming content through Cloud Files enables you to deliver video content quickly and easily, without making your users download the content first. They can begin viewing your content immediately and jump around the video stream without needing to buffer.
Because Rackspace uses HTTP delivery for streaming content, you can use the Akamai content delivery network (CDN) to deliver your content. This means that the performance should be identical to the CDN speeds that customers are used to.
Before you begin, you must CDN-enable the container that holds your streaming content. Use the following steps to perform this task:
After your container is CDN-enabled, use the following steps to get the container’s streaming URLs:
The following example shows the CDN links that display:
HTTP: https://cdc4c16471588d4846bf-cc339a649709710bbecd3db1e126ec2b.r3.cf1.rackcdn.com HTTPS: https://ac3c779acb946eaf4819-cc339a649709710bbecd3db1e126ec2b.ssl.cf1.rackcdn.com Streaming: https://b0c42c537095921be66c-cc339a649709710bbecd3db1e126ec2b.r3.stream.cf1.rackcdn.com iOS Streaming: https://09ac235af93af07922d6-cc339a649709710bbecd3db1e126ec2b.iosr.cf1.rackcdn.com
