I am looking for any how-to documentation for this device. One of our users bought one and is trying to push content to our server, but it appears that out of the box, it cannot connect unless I disable authentication or install a module to enable the password to be in the connection URL. However, doing that will ask clients to authenticate as well. Some workaround is mentioned in discussion, but I don't know exactly what I am looking for so I can't find the documentation for such a setup. I need to reboot the server today for the path 16 upgrade anyway, so I'd like to put whatever modules and settings in place when I do that.
I have one of these. I wouldn't think you'd be able to have authenticated streams supported with it as the stream settings page doesn't include any of that info. There's the option of using an XML file for config, but I'm not sure if you could put the auth details into it.
On another note, let me know how satisfied you are with the unit in general. I've just started using mine and I'm not so happy at the moment. I'm finding the configuration screens to be difficult to use and buggy, the streams and recorded video produced jittery and the status/error messages produced abysmal. But apart from that, it's great! ;) In any case it shows promise. I'm hoping that the issues I've seen will be able to be fixed by firmware updates.
Do make sure that you first have the latest firmware for your Matrox. Monarch HD firmware version 2.0 (or later) is required to work with Wowza. You can download the latest firmware from their site
