I've come across several bits and pieces of instruction but none seem to make sense to a noob like me so I've decided to start my own thread.
I've got root access to my server and have installed Wowza Media Server 3 Monthly Edition 3.0.3 build882 on my server.
I know the "live" application is working because I'm able to run WireCast and do live streams successfully.
However, now I need to be able to schedule pre-recorded MP4 videos for streaming. This is giving me a lot of problems.
On my site, www.itv.sg, I'm using JW Player as my media player. Currently the server is playing a select xml playlist of videos randomly. This is not what I want. I need to create a TV Channel.
I've already configured a new Wowza application, "prerecord" and linked it to a public_html folder "mv"
I also already have in place a PHP uploading mechanism that allows me to upload video files and playlists into this same folder.
My JW player already reads the active playlist location from a mySQL database and uses it as its "file" attribute.
This is what I need now:
1. I need to be able to stream "live" my playlist
2. I'll need to be able to change this playlist on the fly without having to restart the Wowza Server
How do I configure my server to do this. And what kind of playlist do I now require to do this?
Where do I go from here?
