I am using Wowza Media Server 3.6.2 to generate RTSP streams and have everything working without authentication using VLC and an Amino set top box (I’ve used both an A130 and an A140). When I enable basic rtsp authentication, everything still works in VLC, but the aminos stop working. When I watch the Wowza access and error logs I see no new entries when the Aminos attempt to connect. I know the STB is trying to connect because a packet capture on the machine running Wowza shows RTSP negotiation happening on port 1935.
What I’m wondering is:
A.) Has anyone successfully used RTSP (basic) authentication with an Amino set top box - If so, is there something I’m missing? My rtsp channel on the amino is entered as rtsp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:1935/live/stream2.stream;username=user;password=pass
**If it matters, the username and password are currently all lower case and consist only of letters (no special characters).
B.) Is there another log file besides the access and error logs that might show me where the authentication is breaking. Does anyone know where the logs would be on an amino?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If specific logs would help I can provide them, but as I mentioned above, with authentication on I see nothing being written to the Wowza logs.
