fms url in adobe flash media live encoder 3.2


I am new to live steaming. I signed up for the Wowza Media Server 3 Trial Edition. I am trying to stream live but cannot find the correct url that I place into adobe flash media live encoder 3.2. I have entered the following:




When I click “connect” I receive an error message as follows:

"Problem with Primary Server

Failure to connect to primary server. Please verify that your Server URL and application name are valid and that your Internet connection is working and retry"

I know there is of course of simple fix but I cannot find it in the documentation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

It is helpful at this stage to run Wowza in stand-alone (/bin/startup.bat) mode so that you can see log output in the console, where you see a publish event when you successfully start publishing.


On the Wowza server, open a browser and go to You will see your external IP address at top.

You will have to map requests that come in to that address on port 1935 to the server running Wowza. In a router this is usually called “port forwarding”. These guys keep track of 100s of routers and how to do that
