VOD Format Types

What are the video formats supported by Wowza (vod) ?


Whatever Flash, Silverlight and RealMedia support generally. Wowza streams to all three platforms. What are wondering about exactly?

What are you streaming to? Flash? Silverlight? Realmedia? HTTP?

You may want to read the documentation that comes with Wowza, the quickstart guide is terrific for some quick info. With that, since you are streaming to these platforms then you should be familiar with what they can accept. Once you have that information then you can double check to be sure Wowza can support it. The only item I would mention is that the iPhone requires a baseline of 3.0 or under for it’s h264 files. HTTP is going to depend on the browser and Flash supports FLV, F4V, MOV and MPG files no problem. Encoded in just about any profile of h264 along with VP6 and Sorenson. I have no idea about Realmedia, the sooner those guys go away the better in my opinion :slight_smile:

I need to know which formats can I use videos in VOD (mp4, avi, wmv, mpeg, flv …)

Flash, Realmedia, Http and Iphone!

Tks for your reply!
