My apologies if this is a dump post.
I’m a complete noobie, and have spent many hours reading articles and getting a stream up and running.
Just a bit of info: I’m using the wowza trial account, and access it through cloud.wowza.com alongside wirecast.
My streams are of really good quality, no buffering issues or anything. My source is coming from a line with 50mbps upload, so speed doesn’t seem to be the issue.
But when I playback my own stream in either the wowza generated html page, or using the embed codes on my own, sometimes the player stops mid stream. It doesn’t buffer or restart, just stops completely.
Pressing any buttons on the player does nothing, and I’m forced to re-load the page (F5) and then the stream works fine again.
On the wirecast side of things, it’s maintaining a good connection and I can see the data being transferred to wowza with no issues.
So far I’ve only used Chrome, so I’m not sure if it’s browser related or not. I hope to test some other browsers but to be honest, I’m still on the free trial plan and watching streams for extended periods of time to check stability is not really an option
Just thought I’d check here to see if anyone else has seen similar problems?
Should I change players? (I’d rather not, I really love the ability to change bitrates in the wowza player)
