RTMP -> Wowza -> HLS | ABR Segments are drifting apart from one another
I have Flash Media Encoder Live setup to send 3 streams from the same source to Wowza. Wowza is then transmuxing this RTMP stream into HLS segments. However after about 48 hours the playlists of the 3 streams start to drift apart on what segment in the playlist they are on. I am currently using playlists with 8 ten second segments. This is problematic because when playing ABR HLS the player will try to switch to a higher/lower bitrate and if the segments are out of order it will error.
I have been running Wowza for about 6 months and have just started seeing this issue. We are currently sending the most streams we have ever used, but the server doesn't seem to be bogged down.
Roku is involved tho, right. I am assuming from your helpful
There seems to be a correlation (from your report) between this problem and increased amount of streaming, which might not be straining Wowza but may be straining the network, the connection between encoder and Wowza.
