[Transcoding] VOD or local file
Would Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.2 (on 64-bit linux) support transcoding VOD or local files? If yes, is there any the relevant document links? I search the transcoding related documents which requires the incoming video source coming from
http://, rtsp://.. etc. not local file system path.
Just to clarify, VOD transcoding is not supported at present. What Andrew is describing is a work around.
The Scheduler Andrew linked to allows you to use a previously recorded file as a source for a Live stream. So essentially you are dealing with a live stream, thus you can run the stream through the Transcoder. Once you get the scheduler working, you will just need to follow the Transcoder guide for live streams.
If the files are not located in the
[wowza-install-dir]/content folder, you will need to modify the Application <Storage Directory> to point to the files. This is documented in the
Wowza User Guide starting around page 54.
