And we are using Wowza to turn them into unicast rtsp streams for our set top boxes (+ add some access control with our custom token system). This works great for the streams with mpeg2 audio, but ac3 audio doesn't seem to passthrough to the rtp stream:
RTPPlayer.describe: No audio packetizer: AC3
RTP should support AC3 as there is no protocol specified codec and our STB can decode AC3 aswell. Is there any way to get this working with Wowza?
Since we are a startup iptv provider we really don't have the capital to invest in nice elemental transcoders to solve the problem. Each stream is approx 13Mbit/s (audio+video) so Wowza transcoder isn't really an option either.
