Hello there.

Wowza 4.2 installer is now an x86 binary. It doesn’t use package management such as deb or rpm any more.

Note: A silent installation option is available for all platforms, including Red Hat Package Manager and Debian Package Manager options for Linux. For more information, contact

If you want to make a deb package then you will have to do that yourself, probably by doing the install as normal which will extract the files and then building the package. It’s not something Wowza supports any more though.
