Null pointer exception at


I m having a problem with rtsp/rtp stream getting disconnected which is coming from live encoder, Initially I was getting RTSPSessionTimeOut with the exception

ERROR   server  comment 2014-07-21      06:25:28        757866633   -       906003490       0       246488.956      -       -       -       -       -       -       -       -       RTPStream.shutdown[stream.close:{mdr:null udp:com.wowza.wms.rtp.transport.RTPUDPTransportMina@44558e2e app:com.wowza.wms.application.ApplicationInstance@44ab6493}] : java.lang.NullPointerException|at|at|at|at|at|

As mentioned here : RTSP/rtp session timeout I have changed the RTSP session time out value to 0 to never time out, I still see the exception and the stream disconnects after running for every couple of hour.

P.S : I am using WowzaStreamingEngine 4.0.3

Any insights?



Hello Anupam

It would help if you could provide more context surrounding the event where the nullpointer is thrown. If possible, zip up your conf/ and logs/ directories and send them to for further review. Please be sure to mention this post in the email.
