When the Type of the StreamIndex element is video, the FourCC attribute indicates the video codec. Supported values are:
WVC1, which represents the VC-1 codec
AVC1, which represents H.264 MPEG 4 Part 15. Other synonyms are X264, DAVC, and H264.
AVCB, which represents H.264 MPEG 4 Annex B
Note that X264, DAVC, H264 values should not be used; instead, use AVC1 as noted in the second bullet point above.
Wowza appears to use the H264 FOURCC and it is stopping my STB client from playing, shouldnt it be using FOURCC AVC1 as per Microsoft ? Is this configurable at all ? Is this fixed in Wowza 3 or a another patch ?
I believe with Wowza Media Server 3 this is still set to H264. I will do a little research and look into either changing it to AVC1 or will make it configurable. I do not have a timeframe as to when this will happen but will report back to this thread with progress.
