    Smile WOWZA and Kaltura Ce5

    We have Kaltura and Wowza on the same box. Kaltura is using port 80 and wowza is using port 1935. We want the best of both worlds. We want to upload through Kaltura but want to use the streaming capabilities of wowza. We are not at this time using live video streaming but want to use the security of streaming when showing videos on multiple devices. Also where would be the best place to put the content on wowza or kaltura?

    There is no problem running Kaltura and Wowza at the same time, as long as they do not share use the same IPort, which they don't by default.

    You can keep video files anywhere that is convenient. To play them back you have to make sure the Application.xml /StorageDir points to that location.

    You just modify the /conf/[app-name]/Application.xml /StorageDir to point to that location.

    Thanks Richard. We like the way kaltura packages the embed code and we know how to modify the javascript that produces it. The actual directory that holds the content in kaltura is /opt/kaltura/web/content/entry/data/4/267 (that's where it throws all the stuff). The problem is that I can point the wowza application to it but it cannot resolve the file names since they have been changed by kaltura. We only want to use wowza to stream but we want to use content that we uploaded through kaltura.

    Also there is the thing of setting up wowza as a destination provider. Has anyone had any luck with that.

    "We only want to use wowza to stream but we want to use content that we uploaded through kaltura."

    This is possible, using the method Richard mentioned.

    However if you want to use the obfuscated links that Kaltura changes into actual file paths, you have to figure out a way to have Kaltura give you the correct file name when supplied with your desired URL. The info is probably in a database table somewhere you can access from a Wowza module.

    What do you mean by "destination provider"?

    In Kaltura you are supposed to be able to setup a destination for your videos where you can still administer from Kaltura using FTP or SCP protocols.

    So, does that mean setting the destination in Kaltura to the Wowza StorageDir location?: /[wowza-dir]/content

    Yeah, but we couldn't get it to work right because the process is looking for some XML files, I cant find how to format.

    Wherever the files are, just point to the them by editing /conf/[app-name]/Application.xml /Streams /StorageDir

    <StorageDir>c:\kaltura\videos</StorageDir>
