    Default Basic Audio Only Live Stream

    I am looking to replace the QuickTime Streaming Server that we are currently using for School Board Meetings. As things stand now I use QuickTime Broadcaster to send the stream to my QTSS server. On my school's website visitors click a link that opens the RTSP URL in QuickTime. However this does not work on Windows. It seems there are many options with Wowza, and I am a bit overwhelmed by the vast streaming options with Wowza. Many of the embedded options seem to require there to be a video stream in addition to audio. I just want a basic audio stream that easily works on both Windows and Apple machines.
    Thanks for any advice. Take care-

    Just about any place where video and audio are handled in Wowza, audio only is handled also and sometimes in exactly the same way, e.g., when mp4 file contains only an AAC or MP3 audio track. If the file is mp3, the only difference is using mp3: prefix on the file when you playback. Using the [wowza-install-dir]/examples/SimpleVideoStreaming/client/simplevideostreaming.html

    Server: rtmp://[wowza-address]:1935/vod
    Stream: mp3:yourSong.mp3

    Here is the tutorial for setting up Video on Demand application which will work for audio files:

    One thing that does not work with audio only files is smoothstreaming to a Silverlight player. It's a player issue, it just doesn't work

    Ok so I think the method that I'd want to use is the Telestream Wirecast Live streaming. I followed this tut: http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....ideo-tutorial)

    All of that is cool. So I copied the [wowza-install-dir]/examples/LiveVideoStreaming/client/ directory to my local Mac, and ran the live.html file. I input my server address, port, and stream name, but it says stream not found. I'm trying to hit rtmp://10.9.1.66:1935/live and the stream is just myStream.

    Never mind, I was entering one piece wrong.

    Is there a tutorial somewhere to embed this into another web page? I don't need it to be such a large window either, as I am only streaming audio I basically just need a play \ stop button. I'd also like to hard-code the server address so the user is not responsible for entering that.

    First, at this stage run Wowza in stand-alone (/bin/startup.bat) mode so you can see log output in the console.

    In a browser on the web server, enter this address:
    http://[wowza-address]:1935
    You should see Wowza version and build. If not, you probably have to either open TCP port 1935 on the firewall of the server running Wowa, or map it in a router (port forwarding).
