I just installed this module exactly as the read me file instructs. I then rebooted my entire server (was not sure if I needed to do this or just stop & restart WMS) but unfortunately this is not working for me. I am streaming via RTMP protocol not live (VOD).
Does the test license of Wowza allow for these modules to be added?
I am trying to use play alias file example #3:
# Map one stream to another
However, let's say my actual media file is stored in the content folder as 'media.mp4' and I wish to map it to the name of 'xyz_media.mp4'.
So in my aliasmap.play file I have this mapped as: media.mp4=xyz_media.mp4
Then on my webpage player I have the file listed as: href="mp4:xyz_media.mp4" and I also tried as href="xyz_media.mp4", but the file cannot be found, and what's more bizarre is that my other test files NOT included in the stream name alias module DO play; these were from PRIOR to installing the module.
So does this possibly mean that the module itself is not working at all?
Also, do I still want to reference the 'mp4:' within the webpage as href="mp4:xyz_media.mp4" or without as href="xyz_media.mp4"?
One more thing, whenever I add modules to Wowza do I want to shutdown & restart Wowza using the normal service commands as follows - I am running WMS as a service, not standalone:
/sbin/service WowzaMediaServer stop
/sbin/service WowzaMediaServer start
