Note: MediaCaster doesn't work for Adobe HDS, Apple HLS, Microsoft Smooth Streaming, or MPEG-DASH streaming, which require packetization.
The mediaCasterType parameter defines the type of stream. Valid mediaCasterType values are:
- liverepeater - RTMP streams pulled from another Wowza media server
- rtp -IP camera streams, both RTSP and RTP, and for streams from native RTP and MPEG-TS encoders
- shoutcast - SHOUTcast/Icecast streams
- rtp-record and shoutcast-record - re-stream and record RTP and SHOUTcast/Icecast streams, respectively.
The streamName parameter is the name of the stream you're starting or stopping, including the .stream file extension.
Start an RTSP stream whose name is camera.stream
