I'm looking at potentially moving traffic over from my existing FMS severs but still have a few issues to resolve. One problem that I'm dealing with is that it seems that during the first 5-10 minutes or so of a live stream's broadcast, it's quite choppy. After that it seems to settle down and smooth out. I don't have this problem on FMS. I'm using the same two client apps to serve the video and view it. I can switch back and forth between the two servers and I still have the issue on the Wowza server, then works perfectly on FMS. This is on my internal network and I have plenty of bandwidth.
I'm using the H.264 encoder (main 3.1) in the Flash player 640x480 quality=90, 10fps, keyframes=10. I have a one second buffer on the client side.
Again, I've been using this configuration and these apps for over a year on FMS (basically once they supported H.264 encoding in the player) with no issue, but trying to move to Wowza, it's quite choppy.
Any suggestions please?
