• How to configure a sort buffer for Wowza Transcoder

    Wowza Transcoder has a default sort buffer of 750 ms. A buffer is needed in order to have a complete frame for transcoding or transrating a stream. This sort buffer can be controlled by adding the following properties to the Transcoder/Properties container in [install-dir]/conf/[application]/Application.xml (be sure to get the correct <Properties> container - there are several in the Application.xml file):

    <Property>
         <Name>sortPackets</Name>
         <Value>true</Value>
         <Type>Boolean</Type>
    </Property>
    <Property>
         <Name>sortBufferSize</Name>
         <Value>750</Value>
         <Type>Integer</Type>
    </Property>
