Pseudo live from vod

I’ve been given a link by Wowza on how to add a few lines of code that will cause a VOD to play at a specific time as if it’s a live stream does anybody know how to put that in or available to hire to put it in because when I call professional services to ask what my budget is for adding three lines of code LOL and Support won’t help

I assume the 3 lines of code is Java code?
If so, you will need to compile the Java code into a Java jar file (ie a module) and deploy it to your Wowza server (in the /lib folder). Then the Application. will need to be told how to load that module.

I think the user docs cover building and deploying custom modules if you want to do it yourself. I imagine the custom module will be a bit more than 3 lines of code, as there is a bit more to it than just that (unless I am not understanding)

I know there are also some standard custom modules for doing this kind of thing. So maybe the 3 lines of code is configuration?

The fact that the link you refer to only mentions a few lines of code doesn’t automatically mean it’s simple or cheap.

Here’s a link that may help you

In addition to the replies you received, here is a video tutorial with a Wowza engineer walking through the steps for the StreamPublisher (stream scheduler)

Hello Amado,
