Hi - Is there a way we can define a custom transcoder and feed that i/p stream to wowza ? Specifically , we might end up doing the encoding ourself, but we need to support the ABR.
The Wowza Transcoder provides a method to group streams at different bitrates together in logical groups for live playback called Stream Name Groups. These groups can be defined using the ngrp: stream name prefix for adaptive bitrate delivery.
To play using an Apple iOS device (Cupertino/Apple HTTP Live Streaming): http://[wowza-ip-address]:1935/live/.../playlist.m3u8
To play using Adobe Flash player (San Jose/Flash HTTP):
So say we have a stream incoming called "myStream". We pass it through our own transcoder and get 4 streams out (720p, 360p,240p,160p) and we pass them to wowza as myStream_720p, myStream_360p, myStream_240p,myStream_160p.
Will wowza be still able to do ABR without us using the addOn Transcoder module ?
