I am planning to live streaming on the iPhone using wowza server on EC2. I have tested the live streaming with installing the wowza server on my local system.
Now, I want ask few question:
1) Is EC2 server available with preinstalled latest wowza server?
2) If Yes, then how I can get the wowza server preinstalled on EC2 server?
3) When I get the EC2 server with installed wowza server, I think, I may need to enter my license key. If I can use my trial license key for the moment? If the setup properly works then, I am planning to buy perceptual license.
3. I don't think you can use the pre-built AMI with the trial license. In any case, you will still have to pay for the Amazon usage. I do think you can setup an Amazon EC2 instance on your own, install Wowza, and then use your trial license. Amazon even offers a
free micro instance which may be good for some limited testing.
