    Strobe Media Playback is a configurable live and on demand media player based on Adobe's Open Source Media Framework. The player is not hosted by Adobe, so to play content with Strobe Media Playback you must first install it in your web server and then place a small amount of HTML code on your web page. ...

    Note: Development builds are not official releases and may not be stable.

    Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.1

    The latest development build is Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.1.01 build 13413 released on January 13, 2015.

    Update

    Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.1.01 (updates Wowza Streaming Engine 4.x to 4.1.1.01)

    Note: For step-by-step instructions about how to update your Wowza Streaming Engine media server software with this development build, see How to apply a Wowza Streaming Engine update.

    Changes (since 4.1.1 release)


    • Fixed perpetual loading gear when trying to view real-time Wowza Streaming Engine Manager error logs when the log had a size of 0
    • Fixed bug where the sort order check box was not being displayed when switching back from real-time to historical view on the Logs page in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager
    • Fixed REST API documentation to properly show the serverName property for actions APIs
    • Fixed REST API documentation to properly show the vhostName and appName properties for application advanced properties APIs
    • Fixed REST API documentation for action endpoints that erroneously indicated support for the POST method
    • Removed REST API documentation for outgoingstreams endpoint because it is not currently supported
    • Added DEBUG icon for debug lines shown on the Logs page in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager
    • Fixed bug in SecureToken Version 2 that calculated an incorrect hash when used in conjunction with the StreamNameAlias package
    • Fixed MediaListRendition.toSMILString() so that properties are output in the SMIL string
    • Added support for RTMPT TCP connections to handle pipelined requests for crossdomain.xml
    • Fixed issue with H.264 and H.265 SEI packet parsing when using Wowza Transcoder (did not account for zero-length NAL units)
    • Fixed problem with Transcoder NGRP creation if audio is set to PassThru and incoming stream is video only. Now the NGRP is properly created with video only rendition of the stream
    • Updated references to the RESTLET libraries (from 2.1.6 to 2.2.2) in the startup scripts when a license check fails and the media server goes into the update license key mode
    • Included linux startup.sh in updates because of the change to RESTLET 2.2.2
    • Updated the linux service script to use the new RESTLET 2.2.2 libraries
    • Added new function for SetCodecConfig for H264, H265, and AAC to set the codec config bytes without decoding them
    • Fixed bug in SecureToken by removing a line break at 77th character for base64-encoded hash parameters longer than 76 characters. This caused the received hash and calculated hash to not match
    • Changed the default behavior for cupertino streaming when requesting a playlist for stream that doesn't exist to return 404 as an HTTP return code
    • Added new boolean property "cupertinoReturnEmptyPlaylistOnStreamNotFound" that when added to an application's HTTP Streamer properties, reverts the behavior to the old way (empty playlist)
    • Added new integer property "cupertinoHttpStreamNotFoundReturnCode" that when added to an application's HTTP Streamer properties, allows for a custom return code if a stream is not found (404 is the default)
    • Added IApplicationInstance API call isLive() which returns true if the stream type for the application instance is a live stream type
    • Fixed HTTP streaming adapter so that if an application uses a live stream type and the packetizer is turned off for a given protocol, the request is treated like a live stream and 404 is returned properly
    • Added WARN log statement to Adobe HDS (sanjose) streaming when request is made for live stream that does not exist
    • Fixed the Application and Machine stats data by forcing the data to be UTC when traveling across the REST API
    • Fixed bug in UserConfig where adding a new user failed with error code 409 even though new user did not exist, when the Server.xml RESTInterface authentication was set to none
    • Optimized the file reader code so that it tracks the length of the file during read operations more efficiently
    • Optimized the stream file and Application.xml when creating a new stream file from the the Incoming Publishers > JVC page in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager
    • Added Sony to Incoming Publishers page in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager

    Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a cloud-computing platform that virtualizes computing resources as virtual machines. A single virtual machine configuration is registered as an item called an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). This article provides the public AMIs that are preconfigured with Wowza Streaming Engine™ 4.1.1. You can select one of the preconfigured AMIs to automatically launch a Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.1 for EC2 instance in EC2 Management Console.

    Note: To get AMIs that are preconfigured with an earlier version of Wowza Streaming Engine media server software, see the AMI Archive.

    AMI Types

    Wowza® provides two collections of pre-built AMIs, which are based on the licensing model option that's used.

    Option 1: Bring Your Own (LicKey)

    The LicKey License option enables you to use your regular Subscription or Perpetual license key with your Wowza Streaming Engine for Amazon EC2 instance. When using this option, billing for your running instance time and bandwidth consumption is managed by Amazon. Wowza Streaming Engine Subscription users will continue to receive a separate monthly invoice from Wowza for usage of the Wowza Streaming Engine software and AddOns. This option provides access to all Wowza Streaming Engine functionality and all premium AddOns, including Wowza Transcoder (for 64-bit instances only), Wowza nDVR, and Wowza DRM.

    Option 2: DevPay

    The DevPay License option enables you to use a Wowza Streaming Engine software license that's embedded in a pre-built Amazon DevPay AMI (a separate license isn't needed). This option provides the convenience of a combined monthly invoice from Amazon for running instance time, bandwidth consumption, and Wowza Streaming Engine usage; however, it doesn't provide access to the premium AddOns.

    For more information about service, signup, and pricing, see Deployment Through Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    Wowza Streaming Engine 4 LicKey Licensing

    Wowza Streaming Engine Version: Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.1 build 13180 (December 02, 2014)
    The LicKey License option enables you to use your regular Subscription or Perpetual license key with your Wowza Streaming Engine for EC2 instance. When using this option, billing for your running instance time and bandwidth consumption is managed by Amazon. Wowza Streaming Engine Subscription users will continue to receive a separate monthly invoice from Wowza for usage of the Wowza Streaming Engine software and AddOns. This option provides access to all Wowza Streaming Engine functionality and all premium AddOns, including Wowza Transcoder (for 64-bit instances only), Wowza nDVR, and Wowza DRM.

    Note: If you're signed-in to EC2 Management Console, clicking an AMI ID will launch the associated Wowza Streaming Engine for EC2 instance in the selected region and the Choose an Instance Type page will be displayed. For details about how to configure the instance in EC2 Management Console, see the Wowza Streaming Engine for Amazon EC2 User's Guide.

    Wowza Streaming Engine 4 DevPay Licensing

    Wowza Streaming Engine Version: Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.1 build 13180 (December 02, 2014)
    The DevPay License option enables you to use a Wowza Streaming Engine software license that's embedded in a pre-built Amazon DevPay AMI (a separate license isn't needed).

    Note: If you're signed-in to EC2 Management Console, clicking an AMI ID will launch the associated Wowza Streaming Engine for EC2 instance in the selected region and the Choose an Instance Type page will be displayed with the m3.medium instance type selected by default. This instance type isn't supported by our pre-built DevPay AMIs and you must choose another supported instance type. In the EC2 Management Console, select the filtering option to show All generations of instance types, and then refer to the table below to choose a supported instance type for your EC2 region.
