Yesterday I set up a Wowza 3 instance on the Amazon EC2 service but I wasn't successful in getting the video streams to work. I am currently using Wowza 2 on EC2 and I haven't had any issues since the iOS 5 video streaming issue. I just wanted to update to Wowza 3 instead of apply the version 2 patch. Here are the steps I did.
I am using a Haivision Barracuda video encoder.
Step 1: Setup Wowza 3 devpay EC2 instance.
Step 2: SSH into the root user account and update server admin.password file.
Step 3: I went to the "content" folder and create a low.stream file and a high.stream file. Insert udp:0.0.0.0:[portnumber of video stream] into each of the files and save the changes. Then I changed my IP settings in the video encoder to the new EC2 instance.
Step 4: Login to EC2 control panel and verify I have ports 1935, 80 and the UDP ports on inbound open to receive video streams from the encoder.
Step 5: Open up stream manager and turn low.stream and high.stream ON. Test settings in the video player and nothing is coming through. The player acts as if its about to start receiving but nothing happens.
I feel like I am missing something really simple... If so what is it?
