    Default Checking if a stream is live


    I'd like to be able to check remotely whether a stream is live or not. Preferably by checking one of the XML files that are provided for server and stream info.

    I was looking at /serverinfo which has

    <![CDATA[ vod ]]>

    when a stream has not been started and <Status>loaded</Status> once it has.

    However, that status stays loaded even if the stream isn't running, until the server gets restarted.
    I need something that will let me know that there is a stream live or not.

    Does Wowza have something like this that I can check remotely?

    I'm not sure if Wowza provide this but you could build some custom code to do it, or have a consultant build it for you.
    If you need the independent consultants list you can request for it via email to

    I think the ability to check a stream is running via a url can be done in one of the Showcases,

    They provide contact details so it would be best to make sure this is the functionality you're looking for.

    This is from HTTPProvider serverinfo

    Which will work, you have to parse the xml, which your app server can do.
