Creating an audio archive - 5 hour max playback, 2 week retention

Hello, we’re looking at a situation where we need to record incoming audio streams and offer the ability to play them back for up to 2 weeks. We also need to limit any particular playlist to a 5 hour max play time, and have the ability to start in 15 minute increments. Is this possible with Wowza? I’ve tried using the nDVR but I can’t seem to get the playlist to limit things, nor will the start time work correctly. Any help or direction would be most appreciated!


Hello Dave. Welcome to the Wowza support forum.

Take a look at this guide to see if it is what you are looking for:

How to schedule streaming with Wowza Streaming Engine (ServerListenerStreamPublisher)

You can record the streams for archiving purposes via one of these methods:

How to record live streams (HTTPLiveStreamRecord)

I hope this helps get you rolling.

Kind regards,
