Stream from x264 encoder to password protected m3u or m3u8


Is it to user Wowza to get an stream from a x264 hdmi encoder and then restream it as password protected m3u or m3u8 file? Something like this http://ipadress:port/username:password.m3u


You can password protect it and your url is very close:

rtmp://[wowza-ip-address]:1935/live/?user1&pass1, but let me check on how to re-stream it and carry the password the m3u8.

Thanks for your patience @Martin Galland. I spoke with the engineers. So, as you know, you can protect the incoming stream with a password scenario, but once Wowza converts it to HLS, we no longer use username/password playback on HTTP protocols.

At that point, you would need to use security options for HLS such as:

  1. Encryption

2. DRM for HLS

3. AES Encryption Testing for HLS

If that doesn’t suit your needs, feel free to submit a support ticket to discuss further options with the engineers.
