Im currently running Wowza version 2.2.4 on a Linux based Virtual Private Server. I have an rtmp stream playing from my server that runs well. I've been looking into the technology it takes to have my psuedo-live stream played on the roku platform. A few questions can help point me in the right direction.
1. Roku accepts iOS format HTTP Live Streaming. Can i use the playback URL from this tutorial or do I NEED to encode the playback URL to use on Roku?
2. If an encoder is necessary, which encoder can i use? I currently have ffmpeg installed, but i see as i was going through the wowza documentation that ffmpeg has not worked for HLS in the past. Also, i tried to get flash media live encoder but i cant seem to find out how to install it. Since i have a virtual server (hosted on the internet) i would have to use command line prompt to retrieve the necessary installation files. I heard that FMLE is not compatible with Linux based servers.
Thanks for your help.
