    Default Record stream


    I am attempting to record a stream with a call similar to this:

    netStream.publish("stream", "record");

    Wowza gives me the following info:

    INFO server comment - onAppStart: basicrecorder/123
    INFO application app-start 123 basicrecorder/123
    INFO session connect-pending -
    INFO server comment - onConnect: 1413370610
    INFO session connect -
    INFO server comment - onConnectAccept: 1413370610
    INFO stream create - -
    INFO stream publish recording -
    INFO stream record recording -
    INFO server comment - MediaStreamMediaCasterPlay: close
    INFO stream recordstop recording -
    INFO stream unpublish recording -
    INFO stream destroy recording -
    INFO session disconnect 1413370610 -
    INFO server comment - onDisconnect: 1413370610

    So it appears the stream is being recorded, but I can't seem to find the file. Where are stream kept? I thought they were stored in the application's folder. Is this right? Am I calling the method incorrectly?

    take care,

    If you look in the [wowza-install]/content/ folder any recordings will in there by default.

    Thanks for the response. The files are not being saved there instead.

    This all seems very strange. Does the output above look correct? Am I reading it correctly that Wowza is acknowledging that it is creating the recording stream?

    I took a wild stab in the dark and seem to hit upon the answer.

    Didn't realize the Application.xml had to be updated. Changed 'rtp-live' to 'record' in the StreamType element and it works fine.

    So, does this mean that 1 app can only record or stream live? I cannot use one app for both?

    Assuming it is a MediaCaster stream (like an IP camera or mpegts encoder), you can use StreamType "live", then you should start the stream in StreamManager or /conf/StartUpStreams.xml with MediaCaster type "rtp-record". Then you can play the live stream while it is recording.

    Thanks for the response, but I'm not sure how it applies to my question. I have one app with many instances. Some of the instance would be playing live streams some would be just recording something like a profile video, not a live stream.

    In this case, do I need to build 2 apps? 1 for live streaming and one for the profile recordings?
