crunchyroll open-sourced this:


.. which last I checked supported time based offset streaming directly
through the swift proxies using a cool buffering hack.  But IIRC, it's
pretty tied to the mp4 format.  I think it was based on.... maybe...


dunno if the email I have for Young Kim is current.  I'm pretty he wasn't
using IIS or even Apache as a front end but instead just served from swift
proxies directly.

Do you by chance have a simple explanation of the disadvantage of straight
up HTTP pseudo streaming using Swift's native range support to serve video
directly from swift?  Cause I always just upload mp4's, setup some
container-acl's and point chrome at the url and it "just works"...

/me continues his quest for even a basic understanding of the state of the
art for video streaming on the web
