Hi can you answer how I can achieve this? The user has a webcam, we want to grab the signal somehow and send it to the server. How did you accomplish that?
Hi @emma kenny, you’ll probably want to use some software like OBS Studio or Telestream Wirecast to encode the video signal from the webcam, and send it to a media server. There’s a video tutorial on how to do this with Wirecast here: https://www.wowza.com/docs/how-to-use-telestream-wirecast-live-encoder-with-wowza-streaming-engine
Alternatively, you can (have an expert) look into the webRTC (beta) in Wowza; it allows to grab the webcam signal in a web page, encode it, and send it to a Wowza Server. As long as you use a web browser that supports webRTC, you won’t have to install any software on the local machine.
From the Wowza server, you can distribute the stream onward to end users, or to a CDN.
