    Default Need Help : Live Streaming Video with WOWza Media Server 3 on Amazon EC2

    Hi There,
    I've set up my Amazon EC2 server instance with the pre-installed Wowza lickey package (AMI ID: ami-4c8d007c) . I now need to set up a video player that I can embed in our website's homepage to show a camera feed from a live event I'm streaming via Wirecast 4 next thursday.

    The signal path is a Sony PD-170 camera going via firewire into a Windows 7 Desktop w/ Wirecast 4 up to Amazon EC2 Instance.

    Where is the best place to look to get exact instructions on how to set up this particular livestreaming configuration ?

    Thanks very much

    John Henry Dale

    Thanks Richard. Sorry - I realize this is pretty basic stuff here - but I actually need to to know how to

    "Create application folder [install-dir]/applications/live"

    AWS Managment Console doesn't seem to have any file creation/ management utility. Am I doing this via FTP ? If so, where do I find the proper settings for getting into the EC2 server ? I'd rather not do this via command line / telnet if possible.
    Thanks,
    John Henry

    You can use FTP or SSH. Make sure your Security Group allows the necessary ports.

    Take a look at the EC2 Quickstart and User Guide here:
