Thread: Record the source, not the transrated streams

  1. #1

    Default Record the source, not the transrated streams


    I've noticed that my transrated streams are being recorded along with the source stream under my app using liverepeater-origin-record. Is there a way to disable this and only record the source (or a specific transcoded stream) while still providing all the transrated streams to the edge?

    i.e. When I stream on live1.sdp, I get recording files for:

    But I only want live1.sdp.mp4 or live1.sdp_480p.mp4 (depending on requirements).

    I'm also noticing that when I restart Wowza, then start a live stream, it transrates and records everything.
    If I stop the stream, and restart it, it rotates the files and records everything again.
    If I stop and start one more time, it doesn't transrate at all and only records the original source.

    The logs show that I've exceeded the licenses:

    I'm guessing I have to either wait for something to time out before I can start transrating again....

    Change the StreamType to "liverepeater-origin", then use LiveStreamRecord addon or API to record just the source stream
