Thread: Restart recording automatically

  1. #1

    Default Restart recording automatically

    I'm using the Live Stream Recorder (HTTPLiveStreamRecord) to record my live streams to the "content" directory. Everything works perfectly. Re-streaming using VOD works perfectly as well.

    But one day due to network issue the encoder disconected and reconected the stream. So the recording stopped at the time of disconecting stream. is there any way to restart recording after reconecting stream in encoder.

    Is there anything I can do within the Wowza server to restart recording automatically after reconecting stream ?

    Changing the Streams/StreamType to live-record in [install-dir]/conf/[application]/Application.xml will record the entire stream to your [install-dir]/content directory. By default, if the encoder stops, a new set of file(s) will be created and the previous files will be renamed sequentially with version numbers.

    There is a way to append the files (instead of versioning them) during an encoder start/stop instance. To do so, add these to your Application.xml /Streams /Properties container:
