Real-Time Stream Details page in Wowza Video

This article introduces the different parts of the Real-Time Stream Details page to help you find your way around the Wowza Video user interface.

View the settings for your real-time stream, including the ID, Name, Region, RTMP URL, Stream Name, Publish Token, whether to save to asset management, and whether to enable playback security.

The Real-Time Stream Details page displays the following details:

  • ID – The ID Wowza Video automatically assigns to the stream when it is created. 
  • Name – A user assigned name.
  • Region – The regional server you chose to distribute your stream through.
  • RTMP URL – A URL to configure an RTMP encoder as the source.
  • Stream Name – The name Wowza Video automatically assigns to the stream when it is created.
  • Publish Token – The authentication token you pass to the SDK.
  • Save to Asset Management — Whether the stream is recorded and saved to Asset Management as an MP4 for download and an HLS stream for video-on-demand (VOD) replay. Recorded content stored in Wowza Video generates additional costs.
    Note: Wowza Streaming Cloud subscribers only have the option to create an MP4 recording. Asset Management is available to Wowza Video subscribers only.
  • Disable VOD encoder — Whether to skip creating the HLS stream for VOD replay. 
  • Playback Token  – A token that must be passed by viewers for playback.
Tip: When you're ready to implement Real-Time Streaming at Scale for production, consider using the Wowza Flowplayer Real-Time Streaming (WebRTC) plugin for playback if you need to embed and configure the player in your own page. Wowza Flowplayer is included as part of your Wowza Video subscription.
