Problems with Webrtc


I’m using wowza with webrtc, but when you try to start a publication, it returns the following error:

WebSocket connection failed: wss://

Could you help me with this?

Thanks !!


A few things that will be helpful:

-What Wowza Streaming Engine version are you on? (I was not able to connect to

-What browser version are you testing with?

-What does the browser debug log say?

-I would double check the WebRTC readme to verify setup is correct.

If you like to move this to a support case please send the above info, along with the below folders:




If you are not sure how to get this information please see the following tutorial.




Glad to hear it’s working after adding your StreamLock cert to port 443.

I’m not aware of a way to do this. If it’s possible, you will have to edit the sample html/chat/javascript files to be in view-only mode in a chat session.




Streaming Engine version is 4.5.0

My browser version is Firefox 50.0

The setup is correct.

In the wowza log the following line appears:

2016-11-21 14:11:13 BRST comment session INFO 401 1756078076 client connectionClosed [1756078076] pingtimeout defaultVHost - - 20.326 [any] 443 - rtmp - unknown 1756078076 200 0 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


I noticed that I was missing the port 443 configuration with the streamlock certificate for wowza. Only port 9443 was configured.

I used the procedure below:

After this change, I tested it and everything is working.

Now, I have a new question:

Is there a url that I can only see people in the chat without having to connect in this chat?

Thanks !!
