I'm using the transcoder add-on to transcode an incoming flash player origined h264/speex to h264/aac.
However, sometimes I see this error in the logs:
ERROR server comment 2011-12-28 11:52:41 - - - - - 14577.795 - - - - - -- - TranscoderSessionDestination.init[liveapp/_definst_/41404507__1]: [41404507__1_x264]:java.lang.NullPointerException
1. What does this error mean? and why is this happening?
2. How can I catch this error and act on it?
Also another question regarding the transcoder addon
Is setting the LiveStreamPacketizer mandatory for the transcoder to work? We are using a CDN that pulls our stream so up until now I have not had the need for the HTTPStreamers and LiveStreamPacketizer to be turned on my wowza server as the CDN was taking care of that.
If it has to be on for the transcoder to work is there a similar way like the transcoder has with the ILiveStreamTranscoderControl > isLiveStreamTranscode to not have it work on every stream it encounters?
