Thanks for all the responses. It is much appreciated.
I tried to use the nDVR module for testing purposes but failed.
I may be deviating from the subject here as this may be a basic issue but here it goes.
As far as I understand from the material I found in the forum and the articles, nDVR is supposed to start recording when the stream starts.
Is this correct? And the stream needs to be started via the dvr application whose setup instructions are given in “How to setup and run Wowza nDVR”, right?
I followed the steps here and then tried to start a stream with name “test.stream” and type “rtp” via the application “dvr”.
The file test.stream contains: rtsp://camera-ip-address/axis-media/media.amp.
This works with the example application “live” and I am able to watch the live stream.
But when I start the same stream via the dvr application Wowza complains about timeout and destroys the stream after about 10 seconds.
And I don’t see anything recorded either.
Also, I captured the packets via wireshark and everything looks ok. I can see the RTP packets, etc.
So I am not sure why there’s a timeout.
Below are some sample logs:
