    Hi
    There isn't a correct bitrate for streaming audio only, AAC normally comes at 56 kbps and mp3 comes in around 96 kbps - 128 kbps.

    Source -> Wowza -> Client

    Take a look at this link to help you,

    Hi
    You can pull as many streams as your hardware can cope with, when a client connects they will get that stream.

    Did you read through the link I sent you above?

    How many streams/channels did you have in mind?

    Hi
    You have an Application called "live"

    Take a look at this link,
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....-re-streaming)

    Create a text text file called mycoolstream.stream in the directory called /content/ as stated in the link above.

    In the /conf/ directory you will see StartupStreams.xml this allows you to pull a stream into Wowza when Wowza starts.

    E.g.
    <StartupStream>
    <Application>live/_definst_</Application>
    <MediaCasterType>rtp</MediaCasterType>
    <StreamName>mycoolstream.stream</StreamName>
    </StartupStream>

    If you set <StreamName> to point at the .stream file with the radio station details in that you want the content from (the source) Wowza will pull that stream.

    Repeat this process for each stream/channel you wish to publish.

    Now that Wowza is pulling the steam, and the new stream is called "mycoolstream.stream", when clients connect to your application (live) and stream (mycoolstream.stream) they will get the radio station stream you are pulling to Wowza.

    If you change <StartupStream> to this:
    <StartupStream>
    <Application>live/_definst_</Application>
    <MediaCasterType>rtp</MediaCasterType>
    <StreamName>mycoolstream2.stream</StreamName>
    </StartupStream>

    You will have another stream into Wowza and you get another steam/channel in the same application called "live" called "mycoolstream2.stream".

    You clients will connect to [Wowza-ip]/live/mycoolstream.stream or [Wowza-ip]/live/mycoolstream2.stream

    Hi
    No you can't re-stream the mms stream through Wowza.

    Wowza does not support mms. I have been able to use VLC following the transcode examples at the bottom of this guide:

    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....rver-(MPEG-TS)

    Just replace the rtsp url with the mms url in the first example in the note.
