How to Record Live Streams in Wowza Streaming Engine


In the age of COVID-19, video streaming has taken over. And for companies in industries ranging from healthcare to surveillance and security, it’s useful to create video-on-demand (VOD) assets from live streams.

Live-to-VOD services enable broadcasters to repurpose content and expand their audience as soon as a live event has ended. What’s more, VOD assets put the end user in control of their viewing experience — something we’ve all come to expect — with the ability to instantly, play, pause, and rewind the recording.

Luckily, it’s easy to record live streams using Wowza Streaming Engine and we offer a few options for doing so. In this video, Tim Dougherty gives the rundown on how it works. Watch the demo and check out our documentation to learn more.
