Is it possible to send a 720p H.265 encoded stream with the default wowza settings?
The plan is to have a large High quality image streaming in at low(er) bandwidth then H.264 and then have wowza do all the conversions for any player that requests it, even players that are not H.265 compliant.
Is this possible without touching the H,265 transcoder? or does this need to be set up in order to do this?
and if so will any player receive the stream in their native format, or do more settings need to be applied.
The HEVC/H.265 video format hasn't been widely adopted yet by encoding technologies or player vendors. Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1, however, introduces preview support for the HEVC/H.265 format. DivX makes one of the few players that supports H.265 video.
This article explains how to configure Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1 to transcode a live video stream to H.265 for MPEG-DASH playback in the DivX Web Player.
