A peculiar scenario: a client is running a schedule on their local computer and wish to publish (UDP/Mpegts) to their wowza server for streaming. I am aware that multicast packets are discarded at the gateway/periphery but they say they have contacted Wowza and the response is this can be done, redirected them to the standard post:
192.168.1.200---(184.108.40.206:10000)----->220.127.116.11(Wowza across Internet)------>rtmp(this is no problem, obviously)
This is actually more of a networking question but since connected with Wowza and the client says it is possible according to Wowza, I am posting here. I have also read other related posts but none of relevance or similar situation.
Any help would be appreciated. So will a confirmation that it can't be.
You can re-stream mpeg-ts over the internet using Wowza following the
MPEG-ts guide, and you can publish mpeg-ts over the internet using
Wowza Push Publish, but not multicast. Multicast is only supported on a vLAN that supports multicast.
Wowza supports re-streaming from a mpeg-ts source over udp. If it is traversing the internet I don't think it is technically a multicast stream, but I'm not sure that matters in this case, Wowza should be able to re-stream it following the
