Streaming engine RTSP streams not working

After installation of Streaming Engine on Ubuntu server, accessing

http://[my-server-ip]:1935

does not return anything (says “Empty response”).

Port 1935 is open in firewall.

Then, based on the tutorial here

https://www.wowza.com/docs/how-to-re-stream-video-from-an-ip-camera-rtsp-rtp-re-streaming

I configured a stream file for stream

rtsp://184.72.239.149/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_115k.mov

In the application, under “Incoming Streams”, this stream is shown “Active”. However, the test players do not display anything. I tried running the “Mobile” urls in VLC player, that also fails to play.

Is there any configuration I missed?

Define the open port in the RTSP url. Default is 554

rtsp://184.72.239.149:1935/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_115k.mov

Thank you for reply Jay,

This url

rtsp://184.72.239.149/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_115k.mov

is the source (“Stream URI”) of my stream file.

The output url (as seen in “Test Players” for “incoming streams”) is

rtsp://[my-server-ip]:1935/hikCams/test1.stream

I tried changing the “Stream URL” in “Stream File” to

rtsp://184.72.239.149:1935/vod/mp4:BigBuckBunny_115k.mov

But no luck.

Any other suggestions?

@Jay Charles are you still available for some Wowza development? I tried to contact you at your “first contact” email.
