Wowza shutdown unexpectedly


After I enabled Transcoder AddOn and start publish live stream via ffmpeg Wowza suddenly stoped. In error log I got follow message:

MediaWriterH264: Unsupported audio format for MP4 container: CODEC_AUDIO_PCM_LE

I think it is not good to stop wowza if codec not supported.


Is this the only suspicious message in your error log and access log? An unsupported audio format is likely not the reason for wowza to stop. Check the access log too, because it may contain useful information about what happened just before it stopped. You may also check the syslog (Linux) or the System/Application Event Log (Windows) to see if there were any errors in the Java Virtual Machine.
