    Default changing application stream content storage

    New to Wowza,
    on a centos server
    I am trying to understand how to change the applications.xml file, and do I understand that I should make a new folder in the applications folder.

    [install-dir]/applications/myvideos
    then copy the applications.xml to this folder?

    What if I want to stream from within a different folder from a webserver folder.

    so would I change the streaming section of the application.xml file from the $.com.wowza...etc.../content/ to

    /home/USERNAME/public_html/mediafiles/

    ???

    thanks for any help, I have been searching the net for hours trying to understand how to make this change.

    I have 300gb of mp4 files that i want to stream instead of have it download.

    Hi
    To create an application you need to create a directory in
    [install-dir]/applications/

    If you wanted to call it myvideos you would see
    [install-dir]/applications/myvideos

    Then create a directory in [install-dir]/conf/ called myvideos so you would see
    [install-dir]/conf/myvideos

    Copy the Application.xml from [install-dir]/conf/ and add to the new directory
    [install-dir]/conf/myvideos

    Now edit the Application.xml found here
    [install-dir]/conf/myvideos/Application.xml

    You can configure this application as you wish using the Application.xml

    change the streaming section of the application.xml file from the $.com.wowza...etc.../content/ to
    /home/USERNAME/public_html/mediafiles/

    Yes this is correct.

    There is a guide for on demand content here,
