Problems receiving MPegTS over http


we are trying to receive a http TS stream which plays well with VLC, but the stream does not start.

The status is “Waiting for Stream”

log and configs attached.

I updated your comment and removed the .zip file because it contains private info that you do not want out online.

I would suggest opening a new ticket to get our support folks taking a look at the conf and logs data set.

Hello @Christopher Kang

When you configured the .stream file which Mediacaster Type did you select?

Check this article for further details on setting up mpegts over tcp:

**New playback options available with update of Wowza Streaming Engine version 4.7.6

The Wowza nDVR feature enables you to record a live stream with Wowza Streaming Engine while simultaneously allowing users to play or pause the live stream, rewind it to a previously recorded point, or resume viewing at the current live point. Wowza Streaming Engine 4.7.6 adds support to record MPEG-DASH live streams with the nDVR feature.

See our quick start guide here:

wowza supports mpegts-tcp only in pull mode, not push. Unfortunately it is not spelled out in the doc.
