Thread: On Demand Applications

    Default On Demand Applications

    Afternoon All.

    I am currently attempting to setup an on-demand radio system.

    I am storing the files on a network NAS and have changed the application.xml in the install dir from

    HTML Code:
    <StorageDir>${com.wowza.wms.AppHome}/content</StorageDir>
    
    to
    
    <StorageDir>\\193.xx.xx.xxx\ondemand</StorageDir>
    Within the share i have numerous sub folders for my content.

    I have set up an application but no configuration folder or file.

    I have tried connecting to my files using JW and cannot seem to get it to work. Am i missing something or is my config completly wrong?

    Any help would be appreciated greatly!

    What does the rtmp url look like? The first part after the IP address is the App name.

    Take a look at the Wowza log file, you should see the path where Wowza is attempting to find the video.

    Hey,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Im not seeing anything in the logs, its only showing me the referral URL's.

    I've tried:

    rtmp://193.xx.xx.xxx/PROD/filename.mp3 (all in file section on JW)

    filename.mp3 (in file section on JW)

    rtmp://193.xx.xx.xxx/PROD (in streamer section on JW)

    and

    mp3:filename.mp3 (in file section on JW)

    rtmp://193.xx.xx.xxx/PROD (in streamer section on JW)

    All without any luck. I'm wondering if its the storage location. Ive got it to work with the default storage and files before....

    So there should be a Wowza application named "PROD" and a file named "filename.mp3" located at 193.xx.xx.xxx\ondemand\filename.mp3

    Is it Windows server? If so, you should start the service with a network user that has read rights on the content folder on the other machine.

    Yeah its a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64 (i know- )

    There is an app set up called PROD, but without a config folder in the config dir.

    The storage location on the top level application.xml is pointing to \\193.xx.xx.xxx\ondemand

    The file is located at

    \\193.xx.xx.xxx\ondemand\subfoldername\filename.mp3

    The service is setup to use a user that has network rights accross the cluster.

    In JW am i supposed to be using the streamer or just file or both?

    Thanks for your help on this one.

    Turns out it was a typo of death!!!

    I had

    <StorageDir\\193.xx.xx.xxx\ondemand</StorageDir>

    instead of

    <StorageDir>\\193.xx.xx.xxx\ondemand</StorageDir>

    Thanks again!
