The .jar files from MediaSecurity have been copied into [install]/lib, and the authentication module (below) was added to [install]/conf/live/Application.xml, as described in the included PDF. Streams/StreamType is set to live, and the RTP/Authentication/PublishMethod is set to digest. A username and password have been placed in [install]/conf/publish.password.
Live streaming works without the RTMP authentication module. I can connect from FMLE and start the stream. The stream can be viewed by clients. If all I do is add the module above, restart Wowza and click the connect button in FMLE, the cursor sits and spins for quite a while until it times out. Sniffing the network, I see the connect request go to the server, and the server responds with
There is no other contact. FMLE does not popup the login dialog box. It sits there until it times out. I've dug through the documentation, looked through the forums and read through the comments for "How to get MediaSecurity AddOn". I think I'm doing everything that should be done, but I must be missing something. Pointers to other documentation and other suggestions appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for reporting your solution, and your problems with the docs. I will try to go through them and see if there is anything I can suggest to the Wowza doc people for clarification. If you have any specific suggestions, please do send them, since it difficult for experienced users to notice omissions and the like which may be more apparent to new users. So, please know your comments are appreciated and needed.
To clarify your statements: You can use RTMP with FMLE without using a secure connection. RTMP is the non-encrypted flash streaming protocol. RTMPE is the encrypted streaming protocol, which is used to prevent copyright infringement. You can use RTMPE or RTMP automatically simply by using either RTMP or RTMPE in your publish URL or your playback URL. SecureToken is used to prevent unauthorized playback by allowing or denying the connection.
You should be able to get RTMP Authentication working in just a couple minutes, after you have read the entire MediaSecurity User's Guide included in the download
Just now I followed the steps in the "Installation" section, and steps 1, 2, 3, and 6 in the "ModuleRTMPAuthentication" section. Started Wowza, published to the application I configured, and saw the FMLE authentication popup. It should be easy, not difficult. If it's not easy, please let us where you saw difficulty so it can be fixed.
