The encoding process involves a raw video on disk? I don't think you can do it.
Or it is a live encoder? You can use StreamType "live" to view the stream while the encoder is also saving it to disk. And/or you can use StreamType "live-record" and users will be able to view while Wowza also records the stream.
It is an MP4 issue. The file must be complete. It includes a header/tail that references all the items in the file (moov atom). So this header/tail cannot be written until the file is complete. There are ways to write fragmented files but we do not support these until the file writing is complete.
Is it possible to do live-record in a case where we have been using RTP-Live? We have a vlc config that works well for live Flash. But we would like to record it to the local disk while it is streaming live. Can we replace the rtp-live with live-record in the <StreamType></StreamtType>.
