I'm trying to achieve a setup like this,
I have 2000+ video files (H.264 & AAC). I keep them as 1080p 19:6.
I'd like wowza transcoder or any other mechanism to generate 240p, 360p and 720p streams on the fly when they are requested.
(output streams are H.264 AAC too so I don't need to transcode them I guess, only transrate will be ok )
I don't want to physically keep lower resolution copies (Or should I? I have a quad core cpu, 18gb memory server. I think It'll do well )
I want to generate SMIL files dynamically too in order to create adaptive bitrate streaming. But users should be able to keep it in 360p etc. (like in youtube)
I followed these tutorials;
I was able to stream original file, but no luck in streaming 360p version of it or ABR.
I keep getting errors like this in in wowza error logs:
HTTPProviderMediaList.onHTTPRequest: MediaList not found
When I go to this address on browser I get an empty smil like this:
When I use the example /wowza-examples/SimpleVideoStreaming/ClientOSMF/bin-release/SimpleOSMFPlayer.swf
I get "Stream not found null" with
Here is my application.xml conf:
I have transrate.xml as it is.
I have done authentication->none settings in VHost.xml
I'm on developer license key, do I need to get a license to use this feature of transcoder? I was planing to buy it after my development server runs fine.
If this is not possible I will have to generate lower profile videos and keep them physically. Than write a system to create smil files for them. I'm planning to use transcoding.com kind of service. But I'd really like to handle transrate operation on my server. If on-the-fly multi bitreate streaming isn't available than can I use wowza transcoder to create phyical files?
