    Default Use of the Push Publishing AddOn

    Hi all,

    I want to get a H.264 stream from our remote office into our Wowza server in our server room over a B2B link.
    Would the following be the best way to achieve this:

    1) Use a H.264 live encoder to stream to local Wowza server in the remote office (H.264, AAC audio ~2Mbs stream)
    2) Use the Push Publishing AddOn to push the H.264 stream over the B2B link into our Wowza server located in our server room

    Or is it better practice to get the encoders to push the H264 stream over the B2B link direct to the Wowza server in our server room?
    Thanks

    Edited - Sorry, was asking too many questions in one post originally.

    There are pros and cons.

    A Wowza server in the remote office is useful if you want to backup the streams in case the B2B link goes down. There may be less firewall administration, if you have one.

    Note that in your configuration two servers will cut reliability in half since if either server goes down they both go down.

    Thanks, a very good point that we need to consider.

    Ultimately we will be having different clients that will view & distribute these streams. We need to provide separate feeds to each client and we want to take advantage of the transcoder AddOn to offer the stream to multiple devices for each client.

    What is the best way to ingest a single H.264 stream, and output it many times?

    Take a look at this tutorial:

    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....based-encoder)

    Follow the above to configure and playback a live stream for different client types, Flash RTMP, cupertinostreaming, sanjosestreaming (Flash HTTP), smoothstreaming, and rtsp.

    You don't need the Wowza Transcoder to reach these different client types unless the source is something other than h.264 video and AAC or MP3 audio. It is most useful to transrate several versions for multi-bitrate streaming.

    Thanks, I should have said customer rather then client previously. What I'd like to do is to have a separate application for each customer, this would offer them their own multi-bitrate streams they can use as required. We are then able to report usage, stop/start the stream when required dependant on each customer. Each application will be using the same H.264 stream as its source. I'd like to stream the source once over the B2B and (perhaps) transrate it in our wowza server in our server room.
    Just can't get my head round how to take a single source and push it to multipal applications. (Or if this is the best way to go about it)

    To pubish to one application and play in another you can use LiveRepeater or Push.
