    So, you can get it to work in RTMP/Flash. You want it to work in RTSP.

    You will have to narrow down the problem.

    1. Try the Wowza Mobile Demo to see your Android RTSP player works.
    2. Setup and test a VOD Application to see that Wowza works through your firewall with RTSP.
    3. That leaves only your live encoding. You'll have to ensure that your live encoding is supported by your RTSP Player.

    What type of encoding are you doing?

    For best results use:
    Video: H.264, Baseline, Level 3.0, Keyframe Interval: 2 sec, Frame Rate: 15fps.
    Audio: AAC, 44.1khz, 128kbps

  5. Default

    i'm not using any encoder...i have a shoutcast server
    i created a server that can redirect the stream into this wowza server...

    Hi again wlongdonstudio,

    The RTSP URI you have in your first post is correct.

    Try playing "rtsp://" in VLC. Then go Tools->Codec Information, and verify that the codec of your stream is supported by Android/RTSP.
