I have a Datavideo NVS-20 encoder and sending RTMP stream to Wowza server. The box does not have many parameters, just video inout, resolution, bitrate and mpeg profile.
When I choose 720p50 with 4mbit/s the clients experience constant and regular freezes and drops in the video stream. Upstream bandwidth from my site is 10mbit/s and the Wowza server has 1gbit/s connection. Server bandwidth during the live streaming was around 600mbit/s - and I had other events with up to 850mbit/s without any problems but encoded with FMLE at 1mbit/s
When I lowered the bitrate in steps of 500kbit/s the drops decreased but never vanished completely.
I will now try 2mbit/s but I don't want to go lower because then the quality will be bad.
Do you have any experience with this Datavideo encoder or is there something special to tune for high bitrate streams?
And how to troubleshoot this kind of problems at all?
