I am looking to restream a http stream to rtp. I did follow this guide
http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?39 But it doesnt seem to work for me. Am I doing something completely stupid? Do i need to actually start the stream and if so where? The error logs dont seem to be showing too much.
To recap, you entered in your IP Camera's RTSP url into your stream file
as follows. If this is the case, then you will need to "connect" to the stream (as mentioned in "Publishing the Stream" under 3.a within the same tutorial) or add it to your StartupStreams.xml.
The only difference is my ".stream" file is not for an ip camera, but is for a http stream.
Wowza only supports ingress of shoutcast/icecast streams over HTTP, otherwise it is not supported. You can use VLC in between as a transcoder with the http stream as the source. Take a look at the transcoding examples at the bottom of
this VLC guide.
