Hi there, so we’re running Streaming Engine and currently I’m just running our scheduled playback through a transcoder to take the 1080 source and put the files into the different resolutions for adaptive bitrate.
However does Wowza have a method of setting up a watch folder and automatically transcoding the source file into the needed formats? Or what solutions do you guys use? The workflow comes from both Davinci Resolve and Premier plus some outside sources. Is there a recommended solution you guys are using to automatically create the different resolutions needed?
Should we be doing something with Adobe Encoder and a watch folder or is there a solution you’d recommend using. Our Wowza application is based on an ESXi system so I could virtualize another type of Linux based product that is connected to a shared folder that Wowza has access to?
Also we would like to eventually develop a solution based on the Wowza engine where end users can upload content the system would then process the different resolutions and eventually a webpage would be available to play the videos from. This aspect of the project would seem to require far more backend development beyond what Wowza offers correct?
