    Cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) is a mechanism that allows resources to be requested from a domain that's outside the domain from which the request originated. In general, CORS headers are required to enable browser-based HTML5 video players to fetch video and other information from a Wowza Streaming Engine media server and to allow a website in one domain to request video from a streaming media server in a different domain. This article describes how to configure cross-origin HTTP access control settings in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager so that a website on one domain can deliver HTTP-based streaming video and other information from the streaming media server that's on a different domain. ...

    MPEG-TS live streams can carry multiple streams of data including audio, video, closed captions, ad markers (SCTE-35, SCTE-104), key length value (KLV), and more. Each stream is identified by a packet indentifier (PID). Wowza Streaming Engine includes an API for connecting a custom listener to the MPEG-TS ingestion process to insert PID monitors into the stream, which are called whenever data is available on the given PID.

    The code examples in this article show how to add an MPEG-TS ingestion listener API and PID monitor API to your Wowza Streaming Engine™ media server to extract additional stream data and implement a built-in monitor for SCTE-35 markers and KLV data. Listening to other types of MPEG-TS data is also possible using this API. ...
