    Default JW player...

    I am trying to use the jw player to live stream from Amazon EC2, via Wowza Media Server, and broadcasting from Wirecast.

    My Wirecast broadcast settings are:
    see screenshot

    my code is...

    the webpage I am trying on is...

    The server is on...
    And I have been able to do vod, so I know the server/wowza is working good.

    I was able to live stream a vod with the player....
    but I can't seem to find the exact code I need to live stream.

    Can you please help.

    I was able to get this working with Flash Media live encoder and played it on my website, you may need to alter your code like this:

    <div id="player">Loading the player...</div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
       	sources: [{
                file: "rtmp://ip_address/live/myStream"
            rtmp: {
            bufferlength: 3
    where ip_address is where the stream is coming from
    "live" is the name of the application
    and "myStream" is the name of the stream

    Thumbs up Answer

    Using Adobe Flash Media Encoder
    Stream: somecode_here (automatically is in the setttings)

    This is the answer...

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <html xmlns="">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="jwplayer/jwplayer.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">jwplayer.key="YOUR_JW_KEY_HERE";</script>

    <div id='mediaplayer'></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    'id': 'playerID',
    'width': '640',
    'height': '480',
    'image': 'preview.jpg',
    'file': 'rtmp://'
    in the fie:....
    17183?w1Z8atu1PgO9ZxJu17183 is the Stream found on the Flash Media Live Encoder Output Panel.

    The JW 6 files can be downloaded on the JW site.

    And that's it.

    It plays great!!!

    Try taking out the "?" in the stream name. That is likely a problem.

    And look at the Wowza logs. When you push the "Start" button in the encoder, you see a publish event in Wowza logs. If you run Wowza in stand-alone (/bin/startup.bat) mode you can see log output in the console
