I am new to this technology. I have a task of streaming live TV channels (about 10) on the web. I have set up the server and am able to play the test stream.
All the 10 channels have unique multicast ip address and port. i have gone through the documentation and found that the streams have to be pushed to port 10000 (please correct me if i am wrong) but since my input feed is from multicast source, i am not sure how to achieve this. I am able to play the stream on udp protocol and the multicast ip using vlc player.
Would like to know the following :
1. How to make wowza server to take feed from multicast source (<multicast IP address>:<port no>) or multicast group
2. Do i require any addon package to achieve this
My version is 3.0.4. Any help from anybody will be highly appreciated. Thankyou in advance.
Let's see if I can help get to the bottom of this. Do you know what the model/manufacturer is of the encoder that is streaming to Wowza? If so, you can look to the documentation/settings to determine exactly what the stream codec and parameters are. That is the key piece of information here.
Wowza is saying it can't play the stream:
"[mp4a.40.33]: MP3 Audio: Audio is not MPEG1 Layer 3. May not be playable by Flash player."
