Hi radiocom,

The info we have on ffmpeg is in the FFmpeg Tutorial.

I suggest outputting RTMP to Wowza. For questions regarding 3rd-party tools it’s probably best to look to their support resources. Also remember that your software version, OS version, and log output is key when submitting a support request.
