RTSP '.stream' suffix

I’ve noticed that playback URLs for RTSP-ingested streaming applications have a ‘.stream’ suffix added automatically. This is unfortunate because one needs to know the type of ingestion to calculate the playback URL.

  1. Is there a way to turn this off?
  2. Is it bad if, say an RTMP-ingested stream has a ‘.stream’ suffix? (so that all playback URLs will have the suffix)

Hi Peter,

We have an example module to alias stream names:

After installing the module and experimenting, all I’ve been able to do is break RTSP.
My stream used to ingest but now it’s stays at “0 bytes”.

I tried each of these in my file:
*=${Stream.Name} (the default)

Any advice would be appreciated.
