Inconsistency in CMAF Configuration for Live Edge Applications in Wowza Streaming Engine

I’ve encountered a potential bug in Wowza Streaming Engine version 4.8.26+4 (build 20231212155517) regarding the CMAF configuration for “Live Edge Applications.”

When enabling CMAF through the Wowza Streaming Engine Manager UI for a standard Live Application, the system correctly adds <LiveStreamPacketizers>cmafstreamingpacketizer</LiveStreamPacketizers> to the Application.xml. However, for “Live Edge Applications,” enabling CMAF also adds <LiveStreamPacketizers>cmafstreamingpacketizer</LiveStreamPacketizers> , which does not work as expected.

For “Live Edge Applications” to support CMAF, the correct packetizer setting should be <LiveStreamPacketizers>cmafstreamingrepeater</LiveStreamPacketizers> . Manually editing Application.xml to this setting resolves the issue, indicating a potential oversight in the UI logic for “Live Edge Applications.”

Expected Behavior: Enabling CMAF for “Live Edge Applications” should automatically set the correct packetizer in Application.xml for functionality.

Actual Behavior: Manual adjustment is required to achieve the expected operation, suggesting a discrepancy in the UI’s application of settings for “Live Edge Applications.”
