Change streampublisher Content path

Hi @everyone !!

i can’t find the way to pull videos from my video server using the streampublisher module in order to schedule pre-recorded videos.
When i put my videos on the content folder path" C:\Program Files (x86)\Wowza Media Systems\Wowza Streaming Engine\content" there is no problem but when i try to write the path of my local NAS server it seems that the streampublisher does not find/play it…
Here an example:

<stream name="Stream1"></stream>

<playlist name="pl1" playOnStream="Stream1" repeat="true" scheduled="2016-04-15 16:00:00">
    <video src="mp4:\\\storage\video1.mp4" start="0" length="-1"/>


Is there a way to use videos stored in a different server for the streampublisher module?
Or is it mandatory to store them in the “content” folder path" C:\Program Files (x86)\Wowza Media Systems\Wowza Streaming Engine\content" ?

If its possible to store the videos in a different server how is the path so that the streamingpublisher module can access the videos ?


Does this post help you?

We have a video tutorial as well that sets up stream publisher and discusses different options:

If you still need help with getting the path to work, please submit a support ticket so the engineers can review your configuration and logs.

Lastly, since you can configure this at the server or application level, please review the sample code we have on this as well here on our GitHub.

Rose thanks for the information and video.
I actually saw this video before I started to use the module, but unfortunately I still haven’t been able to find a way to change the location of the folder to accommodate the content in a different path.
As far as I can understand, the videos must be stored in the content folder without exception.
My idea is to store all my content in a separate NAS server where i have more storage capacity then in the server where i have Wowza installed.
Is there a way to change the folder where the streampublisher module take the videos to playout ?
