Injected cuepoints into live stream not persisting on recorded file

I inject cuepoints into a live stream using a server-side module that is triggered from the client-side. I then capture the injected cuepoints from the recorded video file using custom code. On 3.6.4, this was not an issue, but it is now an issue for Wowza 4.x.

I am recording to an MP4 container.

Do ensure that you have 'Record Data" enabled for the recording method that you are using.

If recording through the Manager then use this.

Thanks for the update and the fix.
