Stream files provide a method to replace (alias) complex stream names that are published to Wowza Streaming Engine™ from sources such as MPEG-TS encoders and IP cameras (RTSP/RTP streams), SHOUTcast/Icecast streams, and native RTP encoders. For example, if your complex stream name on the origin server is udp://0.0.0.0:10000, you can create a stream file named mycoolevent.stream and assign the contents to the complex stream name. Players can then use mycoolevent.stream in playback URLs in place of the more complex stream name. Stream files are stored in an application's streaming file directory and have a .stream file name extension.
Settings specified in per-stream settings override those in the application file for that stream. Properties added to Application.xml files and to MediaCaster-specific XML files affect all streams played with the application or MediaCaster. Per-stream settings apply only to the types of streams identified by the configuration.
