Get REST API access to get connection code (iOS GoCoder SDK to Wowza Cloud Streaming)

I’m using the GoCoder SDK in iOS and I want to stream from my custom app to Wowza Cloud Streaming. I have the following questions:

1) Reading other answers it looks like I need to get the connection code using the Wowza Streaming Cloud REST API because I’m using a custom app with integrated GoCoder SDK. Did I understand correctly?

2) In order to get access to the Wowza Streaming Cloud Rest API I need to ask for an API Key from this page. When I click on “Request API Key” the form asks for my Account Number, specifying that it is located on my monthly invoice. I’m still on my trial period and trying to figure if Wowza is a fit or not for my company, so I don’t have a monthly invoice. Where do I find my Account Number to request an API key for the Wowza Streaming Cloud Rest API?

Thanks in advance for your help,


Hi Paolo,

That is correct, you will need to leverage the Wowza Streaming Cloud REST API in order to simulate the connection code functionality with the GoCoder app. You can use the sandbox environment with your Cloud trial subscription. You will need to use as the hostname for your API endpoints. Do note that you are not actually creating transcoders/streams in sandbox. It is primarily only for testing API commands. REST API access in production environment requires a paid Cloud subscription.
