    The miniCaster specifications state that the encoder supports the following Stream Output: "MPEG2-Transportstream (ISO/IEC 13818-1) encapsulated in RTP (RFC 3550) including Audio (AAC) and video (H.264)." Our QA have successfully configured and tested a live stream from a miniCaster encoder with Wowza Media Server.

    Yes, it works. Thank you.

    I had some headaches as i cannot see the stream published in Wowza while playing well in VLC on the same computer when i realized that i had to start the stream from the Stream Manager first ! I found the information in the other tutorial on setting up RTP encoders with Wowza.
    It would be nice to mention it in the new tutorial you wrote.
