Thread: RTSP and seek backward problem

    Default RTSP and seek backward problem

    Hi,

    I have a problem with Wowza 3 server. I receive a vod rtsp stream with vlc media player. I can seek forward with no problem but
    i can't seek backward. To seek backward i need to pause, seek and resume. Is this a general problem?
    Thx in advance

    Test with Wowza sample.mp4. It might be a problem with the encoding of the video, a very long key frame interval (gop) perhaps. Take a look at these encoding suggestions:

    Hi again,

    I test my setup with quicktime and real player. I had no problem, it seems that the problem is in vlc.

    If you are streaming to the desktop, we recommend Flash RTMP or HTTP (Sanjose), or Silverlight Smooth streaming. Use RTSP in mobile devices and STBs that have no other option.
