Latest Wowza Video Release with Updated Player!

Hi there!

We’re excited to share our latest release for Wowza Video, which includes an update to the player experience! Please see the overview below. As always, feel free to connect with Support if you have any questions.

Embed codes and hosted pages for existing live streams are now migrated from Wowza Video Player (THEOplayer) to Wowza Flowplayer.

If you use an embed code that was built using Wowza Video Player, you’ll need to update your site with the new embed code we’ve generated for you. In the UI, the embed code is found on the Overview page for the live stream. In the API, it’s returned in the response of GET /live_streams/ID.
