help with ip camera IPC-HFW4300S

i have an ip camera model IPC-HFW4300S i cant seem to get wowza to talk to it, i am noticing whenever i try to connect using vlc directly to the camera is ALWAYS asks for a user name and password. is there a place to put this into the wowza config files?

when i star the connect using the streaming manager it says its connected but i cant get the stream out of wowza,

also is there a way to make sure if the camera restarts that wowza will automatically reconnect to it?

any help would be appreciated


You can specify the username and password for the camera as part of the URL that you place ith the Stream File:


To ensure that the stream restarts when Wowza restarts, follow this guide

on How to start streams at server startup.



Thanks for the update


thanks that worked BUT the stream seems to keep freezing its very jerky even on a 720 frame size. i have 300 MB fiber here so bandwidth isnt an issue , the load player runs fine, any advice on what to look for to fix this?
