    VOD tutorial is here:

    Uploading content to your server is something you have to manage, there is nothing built-in to Wowza.

    ok thanks but I have the next question, I created a directory called trailers in the directory you want to address to view content from a mobile but I do not play a url that income is:

    rtsp: / / [Wowza-address]: 1935/vod/mp4: trailers/Gato-con-Botas-HD.mp4

    which will be the problem?

    Hi inforsepulveda,

    That should work. Edit: you need _definst_ when playing files in nested directories with RTSP/HTTP.

    Try putting the file directly in your content directory and playing with:
    You should see some INFO lines in your Wowza console output when you play the file. If not, it is probably a firewall issue. Try turning off your firewall.

    clear is fairly rare, if I put the sample.mp4 if it works but another name for it is not uncommon .. besides there is no firewall on that server

    In the Application.xml what is the StorageDir set to?, should look like this:

    All the content you wish to play through this application should be at [Wowza-install]/content in this example.

    If you wanted a sub directory within the content directory called trailers you would have:

    All the content you wish to play through this application should be at [Wowza-install]/content/trailers in this example.

    The Application.xml will direct this vod application to look in the directory [Wowza-install]/content/trailers making the URL:

    When content is in a subfolder you need to use application instance (_definst_) in the rtsp url:

    rtsp://[wowza-address]: 1935/vod/_definst_/mp4:trailers/Gato-con-Botas-HD.mp4
