To use Transcoder on a Wowza Streaming Engine™ media server software live stream repeater edge application, use .stream files (or StreamNameAlias aliases).
- Enable Transcoder in the edge server Application.xml file by following the instructions in Set up and run Transcoder in Wowza Streaming Engine. Specify the StreamType as live.
- Create a .stream file in the content folder that contains the full RTMP URL to your origin stream:
File – /content/origin.stream
Contents – rtmp://[wowza-origin-address]:1935/liveorigin/myStream
Ensure that the .stream file is a plain text file with a .stream extension, and that your text editor did not add the .txt extension.
Alternatively, you can use the IMediaStreamNameAliasProvider3 API.
