Capture stream from HTML5 and send to Wowza


Now I have web application that captures camera from Flash and send it to Wowza server. But Flash is not supported by all major browsers.

So is it possible to capture audio and video from HTML5 application and send it to Wowza server without using Flash, only using HTML5?

I know that it is possible to capture video from webcam via HTML5, but I did not find solution to stream it to Wowza (can it be done with WebRTC)?

If it is possible is there any example and/or documentation?

Thank you!


Thanks for contacting the Wowza Community

Here is an article on playing streams via HLS for HTML5 playback:

Is this what you are looking for? Wowza can package your flash stream and distribute via HLS.

Here is a link to the Wowza player, which is a HTML5 player also:

Hope this helps. If any further questions, feel free to contact us.


Hi, i’m re-upping this question, the issue is not to playback without flash, but to broadcast.

Is there a web code source provided by wowza to broadcast to wowza cloud servers from a website ?


I have the same question as Andry. If I use javascript’s Screen Capture API, how can I send that to a Wowza’s livestream?
