) files enable you to replace complex stream names that are published to a Wowza™ media server
from sources such as MPEG-TS encoders and IP cameras (RTSP/RTP streams), SHOUTcast/Icecast streams, and native RTP encoders. For example, if your complex stream name on the server is udp://0.0.0.0:10000
, you can create a stream file named mycoolevent.stream
and assign the contents to the complex stream name. Players can then use mycoolevent.stream
in playback URLs in place of the more complex stream name.
The properties that you specify for live video streaming
applications that host a .stream
file apply to all streams delivered by the application. This article describes how to specify per-stream settings in .stream
files to override those in the application configuration for the stream. These settings apply only to the types of streams identified by the application configuration.
