Can wowza listen for http requests?

I’d like this to happen:

  1. A client sends an HTTP request to Wowza (ex: http://[wowza]/video1/start)

  2. Wowza reads this request and finds the associated resource for this request in it’s storage directory ex (video1.mp4)

  3. Wowza starts streaming video1 on the “live” application.

I think I know how to do #2 and #3. It’s #1 I’m curious about.

Does Wowza have the capability to listen to http requests like this? If so, how can I listen for, and read these requests?


Oh, I was able to do this using the HTTProvider

Glad you were able to find the solution. Thank for posting the feedback.
