Receiving a video stream on android

I’m new to using wowza, and on Android…

I have inherited a web application that publishes a video stream out to an endpoint (wss:// giving a unique stream name, using JavaScript.

I’m in process of implementing an Android app that should play the video stream broadcast published by the web application.

Would using the Wowza GoCoder SDK be the correct way to implement a player that receives this video stream?

Can you point me to an example that shows how to implement a wowza player on android that “just receives” a video stream (using endpoint format above) and plays it, whether by using GoCoder SDK or another solution?

Many thanks!!

Welcome to Wowza and we are happy to have you here in the forums. We don’t support mobile playback at this time for webrtc @Mohamed Mokhtar. Is that a requirement for your workflow?

WebRTC is still gaining adoption, so not all browsers and mobile platforms support it. With Wowza Streaming Engine, you can ingest and play WebRTC streams with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers on the desktop. At this time, Wowza Streaming Engine doesn’t support ingest or playback of WebRTC streams on mobile platforms or in a live repeater (origin/edge) configuration.
