What Origin Type can I use?

When defining your origin server for your property, only certain origin types can be used with prefetching.

In the Origin Server behavior set the Origin Type to either of the following:



  • Your OriginSupported. To use your own custom origin.
  • Media Services Live (MSL)Supported, with limitations. Select this if you're using Media Services Live (MSL) as your origin. Currently, only Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) format media is supported for this use case with AMD.
  • NetStorageNot supported. Currently, you can't use NetStorage as your origin if you want to use Prefetching.
Note: If you're using Media Services Live as your origin, you can use Prefetching and DVR requests are still supported. While the DVR functionality uses NetStorage, the information used by the origin-assist scheme is not coming from NetStorage—it's coming from the specific origin you set up to support the scheme.
