    Default Can wowza supprot empty password for live straming?

    hi, dear all

    Do you kown whether wowza support empty password for live streaming?

    I set the authentication filed for live streaming in Application file as this:
    <PublishMethod>digest<PublishMethod>
    Then set the username as "user" and do not set password in publish file;
    Then I push RTSP live streming to WOWZA server, wowza server always give me a hint that "unauthenticated", do you kown why?

    If you do not wish to use a publish username/password set the PublishMethod to "none".

    Thanks for your replay.
    If I want to use "digest" PublishMethod, can I set publish username but leave the password as empty? You know sometimes, consumer don't want to set complex password, they just want to use the simplest password.

    Now, I set the PublishMethod as none, my encoder can connect to wowza server correctly. I set the PublishMethod as "digest", and set username and password, my encoder also can connect to wowza server correctly.

    I don't think you can use a blank password. You can write a custom module to use URL params in your stream URI, and then use whatever authentication string you want.

    Why not just use a password? Or don't use any authentication.
