    Wowza Streaming Engine (updates Wowza Media Server 4.x to

    Changes (since 4.0.6 release)

    • Fixed CurrentIncomingStreamStatistics for liveRepeaters so that LiveRepeater Incoming streams on the edge correctly report Bytes In instead of always showing 0
    • Updated PushPublishing rtmp-akamai profile so that when a map entry provides a streamName with more than 2 "_" characters, we remove the first "_" character. So "my_stream_1_2728@123456" becomes "mystream_1_2728@123456".
    • Fixed the error message presented to the user when they enter an invalid value in the Server->Performance Tuning->Virtual Hosts Ports->Processor Count fields of the Wowza Streaming Engine Manager.
    • Fixed a bug in ModuleDRMVerimatrix for Playready DRM which prevented server from sending a request for a Playready key.
    • Fixed logging in ModuleDRMVerimatrix which logged a DASH URL when playing back with SmoothStreaming
    • Fixed the return content type for some JSON calls which caused Chrome on iOS devices to crash or otherwise not load the WSE Manager correctly
    • Fixed WSEM testplayer logic to use a non vhost ssl port if one exists
    • Removed debug print statement in live receiver for RTMP events
    • Reverted Fix for live repeater statistics because it causes an exception on the manager side of the REST interface
    • Fixed closed caption bug where captions were not returned when using a smil file and specifying either system language and/or title in the audio or video renditions
    • Fixed issue where CC file specified in smil file was relative to content folder instead of relative to smil file location
    • Removed verbose DVR Recorder timeout logging message
    • Enhanced CEA-608 parser to capture the raw commands as well as the text of converted caption
    • Fixed problem where .scc caption files were not displaying on HLS when streaming CEA-608
    • Changed RTSP authentication to use either Application level properties "securityPublishPasswordFile" or "rtspEncoderAuthenticateFile" to find password file
    • Changed RTMP to allow either Application level properties "securityPublishPasswordFile" or "rtmpEncoderAuthenticateFile" to find password file
    • Fixed issue with getDataMissing in LiveReceiver where it could return a NullPointerException
    • Fixed transcoder so it only suspends key frame skipping on key frames if encode is keyFrameFollow
    • Fixed stuttered playback when playing HDS VOD with captions inserted
