Use the settings of this behavior to optimize video on-demand streaming for all subcustomers registered with this ACE base configuration.
You can override any of the settings on a per-subcustomer basis by generating a policy for that subcustomer using the ACE API, and defining settings via the content-characteristics behavior.
