I’m trying to set up sort of an origin/edge config for nginx to stream
mp4s and flvs.
I’m using proxy_store to cache flvs/mp4s from the origin on the
frontends. I also want to enable seeking in those files using the
flv and mp4 (mp4 is a module from h264.code-shop.com) directives.
The problem I have is that I can’t get the seeking to work if the file
previously been cached on the frontend and I don’t want to enable
modules on the backend since that would mean the cache on the frontend
is polluted with lots of “seeked” files. I only want the whole files
Is it possible to somehow make nginx do this:
- If file not in proxy store, get from backend wait until completely
downloaded else go to 2
- Start streaming from local cache
What I mean is - is it possible to get nginx to ALWAYS read from local
store (proxy_store) and
not just pass along the data received from backend?
I want seeking to always work and I only want one file cached locally.
Thanks for an AWESOME webbserver!
