I installed Wowza on Ubuntu in Vmware but I can't play the test video at all. I tried playing it using a firefox browser within the ubuntu vmware and also tried from the host OS (Windows). The Adobe RTMP, Adobe HDS and MS Smooth player launched successfully but nothing stream. I attach the screenshot here. Please can anyone tell me why it's not streaming. When I clicked start, it only shows current bitrate = 0kbps and no video shows up.
Wowza now requires ports 8086-8088 for administration and to support the REST API, which is the link between Wowza Streaming Engine and the GUI. Make sure you have these ports available on the host. As a reference:
