Thread: Multiple smil files for multiple live streams

  1. #1

    Default Multiple smil files for multiple live streams

    I know this has probably been asked before, but can't seem to find anything using search.

    My content consists of thousands of videos. These are further broken down into live streams (VOD as live stream). My question is this, is there a way to specify a separate .smil file for each stream, or if I were to set them up as separate live applications, could I specify what .smil file to use for each application? Trying to put all of those videos into one .smil file seems to be rather labor heavy, not to mention trying to locate an error in a list that large. I don't even know how big of a .smil file WOWZA can handle.

    Hi
    You can add different playlists to a specific stream as shown in the example here,

    You could also have the separate .smil files but to do this you will have to change the stream scheduler code at the top of the tutorial linked above.

    Yes, I know I can have playlists, that is not my question. In other words, I want a separate smil file for each playlist, or to make it simple, I want 10 different applications, all live, serving different media.
    I can't believe there is no way built into a streaming server that does not allow for this. If my library grows to tens of thousands of videos, keeping up with one single smil file would be impossible.

    If you need a consultant to make the changes in the code for the stream scheduler you can email support@wowza.com asking for the independent consultants list.

    Right, you can build as many schedulers as you want/need.
