How to do VOD Streaming using transcoder

Hi,

How to stream the static video files( VOD ) with Wowza Transcoder now?

Hi,

Thank you very much for your reply and help.

Wowza does not support transcoding for VOD. You must transcode your files first; then create a SMIL file where you define the ABR; then you can play the SMIL file.
