I added a stream file "Camera1.stream" to view IP camera. When I click record button, Wowza records the stream in Content folder which I can play with VLC.
But when I give URL rtsp://<server ip>/live/Camera1.stream" in VLC on the same server, it says can't open the link. I have all settings as per "How to set up live streaming using an RTSP/RTP-based encoder" tutorial. I didn't do any settings for Publisher. I tried "How to troubleshoot RTSP/RTP playback" but no luck. The firewall is off on the server.
This sounds like there is more to this issue then would be easily addressed in the forum. Someone may need to look over your configuration setup.
Please open a ticket with the support team by zipping up your /conf and /logs folders and sending them to
Please also include as much detail about your setup as possible, whether you are streaming directly from the IP camera, or if VLC is in the middle operating as a transcoder. And a link to this thread as a reference.
