    Default Setup for Streaming to website

    Hi there,

    i would like to setup a website that is showing the stream of a wowza server. So people visiting my website are getting to see my "livestream" like they would turn on their TV.

    Server1: Wowza Media Server 3
    streaming to
    Server2: Frontendserver with Website showing the stream

    I know that Wowza is able to send different bitrates for mobile devices etc. But the f.e. iphones are not connecting to the wowza server, only to the website. How can i handle this?

    Thanks!

    Daniel

    Server 2 (a web server) is not directly involved in streaming. Streaming happens between a client, such as a Flash application or an IPhone, and Wowza. The web server only serves files to the client: html, swf, javascript files, etc. The player then runs in the desktop browser or device, it connects to Wowza and plays the stream.

    For production ready Flash player, take a look at JW player:

    For iOS, create an HTML5 page like this:

    <html>
    <head> 
      <title>cupertinostreaming</title>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    <video controls src="http://[wowza-address]:1935/vod/sample.mp4/playlist.m3u8">
    </video>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    Hi
    You can find the tutorial for setting up Video on Demand here,
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....on-demand-file

    When this is set up you will know that the stream works, set up in the same way for a live stream after this has been achieved.

    Codecs are not flash compatible? What is the output of Tools->Information when you view the stream in VLC?

    Or mediainfo, "ffmpeg -i", etc, on the source files.
