I am currently testing the video streaming from S3 bucket using vlc media player. I have followed these steps for set up.
Created a bucket in S3, uploaded a sample.mp4.
Created a Wowza instance, opened a telnet connection and mounted S3. Also modified the conf/Applications.xml file by changing digest to none for RTP authentication.
Have allowed all ports (1935,80,554) for all tcp in my security groups.
I open vlc media player and in the network stream i type this
But all fail to play the videos. Some observations
- The log messages of the vlc shows that it is successful in establishing a rtsp connection but unable to open the whole path.
main debug: looking for access module: 1 candidate
main debug: net: connecting to [my-instance].amazonaws.com port 1935
main debug: connection succeeded (socket = 1796)
main error: open of `rtsp://[my-instance].amazonaws.com:1935/vods3/definst/mp4:amazons3/AR_videos/sample.mp4’ failed: (null)
- I have disabled my firewall and antivirus.
Kindly help me out as this very crucial for my project.
