    You can schedule a live stream that uses a file as source with this scheduler

    divyat: That's what Richard said -- it's configured like a "live" stream, but it is using a recorded video file as its source. So it is scheduled VOD.

    Thanks Richard,
    I followed http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....-class-streams and trying to play it using
    To play open [install-dir]/examples/LiveVideoStreaming/client/live.html
    Server: rtmp://[wowza-address]/live
    Stream: Stream1 (or Stream2. As set in smil file).

    But Failed to play Stream1; stream not found.
    The problem is:ServerListenerStreamPublisher: Failed to get Application can not run.

    What would be the solution? I have to solve this and have to move for working with application module also. Please help on this...

    There has to be an application named "live" with StreamType "live".

    If you have added the "PublishToApplication" Property to the Server.xml Properties container, then that is the application that is missing.

    I don't know if if this should be a separate thread, but I'm exploring more advanced "VOD as Live" scenarios lately due to popular demand from clients. As always, I love that WMS is so flexible and easy to customize! I wanted to know if it's possible to use SMIL files as <video src=""> values in playlist SMILs? Basically, I would like to have multi-bitrate/adaptive VOD streams as scheduled live streams. I haven't tried using a "smil within a smil", but I thought I would ask first just in case it was already a known "yes" or "no" on the Wowza engineering side. Thanks again for your awesome support!

    flashfreaker,

    What you are asking could possibly be done but not quite as you describe.

    Using the StreamPublisher, in your streamschedule.smil you would have a stream tag and a playlist tag for each stream in the group. each playlist would have the video tag set to one of the renditions.

    You would then have a separate smil file that is used for playback. This would reference each of the live streams that are created from the publisher.

    One issue you may have is that there is nothing in the StreamPublisher to ensure synchronisation between each of the streams so over a period of time, they may drift out of sync far enough that switching would fail to work.

    Roger.
