cURL request "requires user authentication" - start/stop live streams every M @ 9:50
Hi all. We're running Wowza Streaming Engine 4.2.0
Our goal is to record the live stream of an AXIS network camera in a Math classroom every Monday in the fall on our Wowza server. From what I've read, it looks like the best method is to create a cron job that uses cURL commands to start and stop recordings. (I know only a tiny bit of Linux — just enough to get me in trouble. I'd prefer to do this by
recording live streams with URL queries, but I don't think this can be scheduled. Please correct me if I'm wrong.)
Doh. Figured out I'd forgotten to add --digest -u "user:pass" to the cURL request. I hadn't *set* the authentication method to digest -- 'digest' must be the default method. Perhaps that could be clarified in future documentation?
