    Default Multicast RTSP playback in QT using "?multicastplay" audio only?

    Team,

    I have a unicast rtmp stream being sent into wowza. I have all packetizers in addition to the multicastpush module loaded on the live application.xml.

    Using VLC I can connect to RTSP unicast and HLS Unicast streams.

    Using VLC and Quicktime I am able to open the multicast push stream by opening the live.sdp created in my SDP directory.

    However, when I go to quicktime and select open url and input "rtsp://<Wowza>:1935/live/live?multicastplay", it seems to connect to the audio only stream?

    I went into my switch and noticed that Wowza does indeed create two incremental streams for every multicastpush. Can someone tell me why there are two multicast streams and how I can get my quicktime to open video and audio with the multicastplay URL?

    Multicastpush settings:

    <Name>multicastPublishRTPWrapped</Name>
    <Value>false</Value>
    <Type>Boolean</Type>

    My multicastmap.txt is blank.

    Client is windows 7 (64 bit), quicktime 7.7.2, VLC 2.0.2

    Thanks!

    My multicastmap.txt is blank.
    I think you have to have at least one entry in this file for it to work.

    My mistake, if multicastPublishAutoAssignAddresses is true you don't need an entry in the map file. I'm looking at your files.
