When should I use HTTP PULL for Live Streaming?
If you only expect the end users to stream the live event through HTTP protocol (HLS, HDS) only, you can make use of HTTP PULL CDN resource to distribute the live streaming, instead of creating a "Live Streaming" resource.
If the origin source is from a wowza media server, make sure it is configured as a HTTP Caching Origin, refer to http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?457
We also advise you to set the "max-age" (cache control header of the origin) to be the length around your video segments for smooth playing.
