    Default Streaming MPEGTS coming in over TCP

    I have a video MPEG-TS video stream coming in over TCP and would like to use Wowza to stream it to a browser and ios.
    One way I was able to get this to work was to use VLC to consume the tcp stream and broadcast it via RTP, and feed that to Wowza.

    Is there a way for Wowza to consume the tcp (or udp) stream directly without using VLC in between? I used this article as reference.

    Yes, if necessary, you can VLC in between. Take a look at the transcoding examples in this article (at bottom):

    Use the mpeg-ts guide you linked to re-stream from that source:

    Thanks Richard. As I mentioned in my post above, we can already get it to work using VLC, but would like to see if VLC can be eliminated and Wowza can consume MPEG-TS directly over tcp or udp.

    Oh, "without", sorry. Then just follow the 2nd guide. You have to be able to reach the source from Wowza

    I am seeing the following in the console if I try to consume UDP.

    INFO stream destroy mpegts.stream -
    INFO session disconnect 329289835 -
    WARN server comment - RTPDePacketizerMPEGTS.handleRTPPacket: Incomplete packet: 1504:1472
    WARN server comment - RTPDePacketizerMPEGTS.handleRTPPacket: Incomplete packet: 1504:1472
    WARN server comment - RTPDePacketizerMPEGTS.handleRTPPacket: Incomplete packet: 1504:1472
    INFO server comment - RTPMediaCaster.streamTimeout[782578434:wgv2/_definst_:mpegts.stream]: timeout:12000 diff:12013 reason:10

    The udp stream is being produced using ffmpeg from a tcp source
    ffmpeg -i tcp://video_source_ip -f mpegts -vcodec copy -acodec copy udp://local_ip:10000

    What is the codec info in VLC when you play the source directly in VLC? Look in the menu: Tools > Codec Info
