I am working with Wowza 3.5 and have a problem that is haunting me the last couple of weeks:
The recorded files sometimes work, but randomly have following issues:
- Video for a couple of seconds than only audio
- Frozen video frame for the first seconds, than everything ok
- no video at all.
I use a webcam to record a stream. On the clientside I have a Flex 4.6 generated SWF and on the serverside a pretty standard "record" streamtype.
The Flex 4.6 app publishes an mp4 stream with Speex Codec. I issue the publish command various times during a Netstream session as I want different files for each segment. Could this be the problem? Currently I have a Netstream buffer to compensate bandwidth problems and only close the Netstream when the buffer is empty to ensure that the file gets written completely. After the Netstream is closed, I publish a different mp4. Are these commands supported in this way with Wowza?
The server runs on a micro EC2 instance for testing purposes. I did not use the Wowza AMI. However I also experienced the same issues on my mac with the server running locally.
Thank you for any help!
