Streaming From Wowza To Set Top Box
Can anyone please help me with the Wowza settings to send a live stream from Wowza to a set top box via IPTV? I have read some of the tutorials and from my limited understanding I need to use an RTSP stream with some modifications to the application xml file. This is where I am getting stuck as I have no experience of editing xml files or how they are constructed and used by Wowza.
I have created a live application within Wowza, connected it to an incoming stream from Wirecast and can view the live stream in the Wowza test players. The next part of the workflow is to send the live stream from Wowza to a set top box which is where I am stuck.
If you're able to play the stream using the Test Players in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager then you're successfully streaming to Wowza. To playback using a set-top box (STB) this will be dependent on the STB itself.
Some STB's require a MPEG-TS output from Wowza which cab be done using the guide below.
