Wowza Cloud - Crop 16:9 Input to Portrait 9:16 Output


Does anybody know how to send a 16:9 video stream to Wowza Cloud and transcode it so it crops the left and right portions of the video and sends a Portrait 9:16 RTMP output?



Hi @Phil Thomas, maybe this can help you?

did you ever get a response for this that works?

This wasn’t helpful for me.

Thanks Karel for the link. Let me see if the Cloud engineers have a suggestion…be back soon

Thanks for the link Karel. I’ll ask cloud manager for you @Phil Thomas- be back soon

Per the Cloud Manager, we don’t have a way for you to do that, but there may be a way to do it in Streaming Engine. Sorry we don’t have a solution for you at this time through Cloud.

Hello Rose, I’m also wondering if there is a way to crop a video sent to Wowza Cloud. Has the situation changed since your last reply a year ago? Thank you!

Hi let me ask for you @Juan_Santillan

Not an option yet in Cloud, but you could try this in Streaming Engine- it requires a bit of custom code. It’s more easily accomplished on the player side though.

Although the cloud engineer says you could try this:

Set the fitMode of an output with a hidden property…that might actually do it. transcoder property output, key:fit
