<stream name="app"></stream>

<playlist name="playlist" playOnStream="app" repeat="true" scheduled="2020-05-22 10:39:16">
<video length="-1" src="" start="0"></video>

And is it possible a rtmp link? Like a rtmp://

On the wowza docs only show mp4 on video src then I cant know if I can use others types:

<video src="mp4:sample.mp4" start="0" length="-1"/>

An RTMP link won’t work. In that case you must first create a .stream file that contains the RTMP link and start that .stream file w/MediaCaster Type “LiveRepeater”. Once that stream is running, you can specify the .stream’s streamname (e.g. as input for the SMIL.
