    Default Need help with live streaming from a tv capture card!

    Hi,

    I am really quite new to streaming etc, but have set up the Wowza server and understand what is required. Except for one major problem - I want to take the Unicast stream from the Netstream plugin in DVBviewer and stream it to to a flash based web page. I have been trying now for a couple of weeks and have now decided I really need some help!

    The stream output from Netstream is on http://198.168.1.40:8088 of my local network and I can play it easily in VLC, i just cannot figure out how to get it in to Wowza!

    Many thanks.

    Hi
    Wowza doesn't take an input http stream other than IceCast and ShoutCast.

    Take a look at this,
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....rver-(MPEG-TS)
    This might help you with the input steam into Wowza

    You could also try transcoding via VLC.

    Hi,

    Next problem - I want to stream from DVBViewer to our Wii console (which only supports Flash Ver7). This I can now do using the following ffmpeg encoding (only video for now) :

    "c:\\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg.exe" -i "http://192.168.1.40:8088" -an -vcodec flv -vb 2000000 -s 720x480 -f flv rtmp://127.0.0.1/live/myStream

    This streams through wowza server to a web server that uses flowplayer 2.2.4 (the last to give Wii support). Now, from all my windows based machines the video plays perfectly - on the Wii the video is very jerky with a pause every minute or so to buffer. Any ideas?

    Hi
    The resolution or bitrate may be to high if you lower them this could solve this problem.
