Set up live streaming using an RTMP-based encoder in Wowza Streaming Engine

Post by DDmallforum » Tue May 07, 2019 6:12 am

Live streams are configured and managed in live applications in Wowza Streaming Engine. You can configure a live application in Wowza Streaming

Engine Manager or by setting properties in the application's XML configuration file. Both methods produce the same result; editing Application.xml

is the only option if you use Wowza Media Server™ software.

Configure the live application in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager

This example uses the default live application that installs with Wowza Streaming Engine.

You can use Wowza Streaming Engine Manager with the latest version of most web browsers that support HTML5 and Cascading Style Sheets level 3 (CSS 3). We recommend Google Chrome.

1. In Wowza Streaming Engine Manager, click the Applications tab at the top of the page and then select the live application in the contents panel.

Start by enabling playback over all supported protocols: Adobe HDS, Adobe RTMP, Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, MPEG-DASH, and RTSP/RTP.

2. On the Setup tab of the live application page, make sure all Playback Types are selected. If necessary, click Edit, select them all, and then click Save.

Note: Every time you edit an application's configuration, Wowza Streaming Engine prompts you to restart the application. However, you can wait

until all changes are completed before you restart.

Next, disable playback authentication.

3. In the contents panel, click Playback Security, and then click Edit.

4. Under Client restrictions, select No client restrictions, and then click Save.

Note: For more information about securing playback connections from live applications, see Playback security options.

Next, enable source authentication for the encoder.

5. In the contents panel, click Source Security, and then click Edit.

6. On the Source Security page, under RTMP Sources, select Require password authentication.

7. Under Client Restrictions, select No client restrictions.

8. Click Save and then restart the application.

The application runs whenever Wowza Streaming Engine is running.

Note: For more information about securing source connections to live applications, see Configure security using Wowza Streaming Engine Manager.

You're almost done. To finish, configure the source user name and password to publish to the application.

9. Click Server in the menu bar, click Source Authentication in the contents panel, and then click Add Source.
