Transcoder does not work


I have a publish point, and get video without problems, i tested on the wowza test player, and goes fine, but when i enable the Transcoder, stops receiving, no renditions showed, only the source rtmp, but if i go into it, i notice it is not receiving, am i doing something wrong?


It’s hard to tell from this description, perhaps you can post part of you access log [install-dir]/logs/wowzastreamingengine_access.log where you start sending the stream in? If the transcoder is active you would see Transcoder activity soon after the source stream is started.



Are you running Wowza on a Windows OS?

To run Wowza Transcoder on 64-bit versions of the Windows Server operating system, the following server features are required:

  • .NET Framework 3.5.1

  • Desktop Experience

Can you please check if you have these Windows components enabled/installed on your Windows server?
