    Default Publish FLV stream to RTMP Wowza

    Hey!

    I am publishing a RTMP stream from avconv using the following command;

    avconv -i http://10.0.0.101:2004/bysid/10 -acodec libfaac -acodec libfaac -b:a 96k -vcodec libx264 -filter:v yadif -b:v 900k -preset superfast -threads 4 -bt 2500 -qcomp 0.7 -f flv rtmp://127.0.0.1/live/myStream

    This makes a RTMP stream available at rtmp://127.0.0.1/live/myStream .
    RTMPDUMP works on that address correctly.

    I can play the stream in VLC using the following link;
    http://127.0.0.1:1935/live/myStream/playlist.m3u8

    All of this is working good and Im really close to purchase wowza, but there is 1 thing missing.
    I wish to be able to "wget" the actual flv as well, so I need to know which URL holds the actual stream,
    it should be something like http://127.0.0.1:someport/myStream.flv (i.e. I do NOT want a playlist file, I want to provide the ACTUAL file over http), how do I do this?


    I fully understand the possibility to "steal" streams if I do this, but this is how I want it to behave.

    wget will not work with Wowza. You have to use a web server to do that.

    It doesnt need to support wget specifically, but I wish to know the *exact* url to where the stream is located so that I can open it in vlc like;
    http://wowza: port/myStream.flv
    without the playlist file etc

    That would essentially be progressive download, which is not supported in Wowza. A work-around is to install a web server on the same machine and map the Wowza content location to a web folder.

    Yes, that option would be viable, but how does one "map the content", when the content are not actual files, but published live streams?

    You can record the streams on the Wowza server using one of the *record StreamTypes mentioned in the user guide. Or using the LiveStreamRecord addon module. Then you can make these recordings available on your web server.

    You can also use a third party utility such as ffmpeg or VLC to record live streams to a file.
