We've been using the Wowza EC2 instance for over a year with great results. Our existing tech stack is: Web cam->FMLE->RTMP stream to Wowza EC2->Record .flv formatted files for playback. We want to change this technology stack to: GoPro Hero Cam ->FMLE->Stream to Wowza EC2 ->Record .mp4 file format for playback. The goal is to take the .mp4 video file saved by Wowza and without conversion (no ffmpeg), play it directly in a quicktime or other .mp4 video players. First, is this possible or is the file conversion step always necessary? And secondly, can I simply use the Wowza pre-packaged rtp-live-record stream or do I need to use the Wowza Transcoder AddOn in order to save the .mp4 so no conversion for QuickTime player is necessary?
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
