Thread: RTSP Streaming from VLC to Wowza

  1. Default RTSP Streaming from VLC to Wowza

    Hello,
    I got MPEG-TS through RTP working with VLC.
    How different is the process for streaming through RTSP? Is it possible to do it without using the stream manager, the .stream file etc?

    Thanks.

    You can do rtp with an .sdp file using VLC. Then you do not need to start the stream in StreamManager. There's an example here: http://www.wowza.com/forums/showthre...8native-RTP%29

    Thank you Randall.
    I saw that document but it looks like I need a VLC player on the same server where wowza is installed right? (based on ile://%WMSCONFIG_HOME%/content/vlc.sdp on the VLC string).

    Is it possible to use this method even if VLC is used from a normal Windows 7 laptop/PC which remotely connect to wowza?

    Thanks.

    Yes. I was able to follow the directions here to setup VLC as a VOD server: http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentati...ming_HowTo/VLM

    I created a file in my wowza content folder called rtsp.stream containing: rtsp://127.0.0.1:554/Test

    Started the rtsp.stream in StreamManager.

    I could then play the stream in the Wowza LiveVideoStreaming client using:
    Server: rtmp://localhost/live
    Stream: rstp.stream

    So there is a way. There is probably also a way to stream rtsp with vlc using just one command line.

    You asked: "I saw that document but it looks like I need a VLC player on the same server where wowza is installed right? (based on ile://%WMSCONFIG_HOME%/content/vlc.sdp on the VLC string)."

    No, you can use that command. In the VLC command you will set the IP to the IP of your remote server. You will set the file path of the .sdp file to some file location you have permissions to write to. Start the vlc stream. Then browse in your file system and find the .sdp file. Copy this file to the content directory on your remote Wowza computer. Then play the Wowza stream from the LiveVideoStreaming client using:

    Server: rtmp://[Remote-Wowza-IP]/live
    Stream: vlc.sdp

    Alternatively you can stream RTSP with ffmpeg rather easily: http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....rver-(MPEG-TS)

    Thank you again Randall.
    So, either ways, whether I use RTP or RTSP, I'll have to create the .stream file and start the application on the stream manager?

    I was wishing there would be some way to do it without the .stream file and without starting the app on stream manager everytime..

    Anyway like that?

    Thanks

    Edit : I've checked out the fffmpeg way but it won't work for me to capture the screen

    You can configure the streams to start when the server is started using StartupStreams.xml:
