We allow users to stream from both Flash and any encoder like OBS. When streaming from an encoder, sound on mobile come through without an issue. When a user stream from Flash, there is no sound on mobile. This is our site :
http://streamup.com. We are struggling a bit to get the quality working great as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
The stream would still need to be transcoded and a third party transcoder may not be as reliable as the Wowza transcoder. Adding a third party transcoder will also add another level of complexity to the workflow which may then require further investigation and a greater downtime to find a cause to any issues that may occur when streaming.
If the transcoding cost is a factor, please email our Sales team (
firstname.lastname@example.org) abut the Pro license offerings which allow an unlimited number of transcodes.
Obviously you will be restricted by the capability of the server hardware as transcoding is a CPU intensive process.
