Multicast Options with Wowza Streaming Engine


I am looking for information on what options are available for onsite multicasting? I am aware of Wowza’s Live Stream Repeater. I am looking for functionality similar to what Microsoft offered with Windows Media Services, however a solution that will work with HTML5 if possible.



Wowza Streaming Engine does support multicast, but you have to use RTP, MPEG-TS protocols to deliver the video to plays like QuickTime or VLC. Silverlight embedded players should also support grabbing the RTP multicast stream from Wowza Streaming Engine.

In this article you can find more information about sending out a Multicast RTP stream.
