    Lightbulb android encode live RTP/RTSP to wowza

    Hi,

    i hope to create an android app to encode live string from camera to wowza.

    there are some questions want to ask.
    THank you in advance.

    i have read 2 articles about how to set up live streaming using RTP/RTSP encoder

    article 1. http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?38
    wowza config: set up Application.xml -> config admin.password -> create myStream.sdp ->Use StreamManager to start the stream
    publish:"Consult your encoder documentation to configure an outgoing stream. Send it to the IP address of the server running Wowza Media Server.
    "
    in this way,
    should the live stream publish to port 5006?
    if there are many device, that publish different stream to wowza, how to playback those streams separately ? there are only one myStream.sdp

    article 2. http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....-based-encoder
    wowza config: set up Application.xml ->config publish.password
    publish: "In your encoder, enter the following information and then click the Publish or Start button:Host Address: [wowza-ip-address]:1935 Stream Name: live/myStream.sdp"

    isn't the myStream.sdp needed to be created? don't need to use StreamManager to start the stream?
    live string should publish to port 1935 ?
    how to let wowza get the stream name?
    if i am going to develop an encoder, what else in working with wowza should i know in advance ?


    what is the different between the 2 ways described in above 2 articles?

    Thank you

    PeggyCisco

    Peggy,

    The 2nd method is RTSP announce where the encoder initiates a connection and sends .sdp to to Wowza. You don't need a .sdp file or use StreamManager with this kind of encoder.

    The 1st method requires an encoder to generate a .sdp file which is copied to Wowza, then started in StreamManager.

    I'm really not sure what is possible in Android, but the 1st method would be more practical.

    I don't have any experience or Wowza example, but a customer posted this solution for publishing from Android

    Hi Richard,

    thank you so much for the direction.

    i prefer the 2nd methord cause it no need to manually setup .sdp and streamManager in wowza.

    for the 2nd methord, could you recommend an encoder you prefer? a desktop one is also ok.
    so i can experience and study it

    THank you!

    Cheers

    Peggy,

    Wirecast does RTSP announce. It is the 2nd set of instructions on this page:
