I am newbie here. What i am trying to do is to restream video from ip camera. I followed the steps mentioned in this url(
http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?39) and as mentioned i am able to restream using .stream file.
What i am looking for is to programmatically do the same?
My scenario is like this, i have a web application which maps camera and its rtsp url to a database. Some thing like
and my client players use camera name(cam1, cam2) as an alias to actual stream. So what i want is, when a client request for a stream with alias name i want to fetch corresponding rtsp url from database and start the stream.
The MediaCaster type you want to use is "rtp". You can also use "rtp-record" to also record the whole stream. Other MediaCaster types (but that are not relevant to you in this case) are shoutcast and liverepeater.
