    Hi,
    For the application you wish to play the stream via a HTTP client add the packetizers you wish to support in the Application.xml like so:
    <LiveStreamPacketizers>cupertinostreamingpacketizer,smoothstreamingpacketizer,sanjosestreamingpacketizer</LiveStreamPacketizers>
    cupertinostreamingpacketizer = Apple HLS - iOS devices
    smoothstreamingpacketizer = SilverLight player compatible
    sanjosestreamingpacketizer = Adobe HDS - Flash over HTTP

    I assume you are trying to restream from IP cam to your destination device using wowza. ( i.e RTSP to HTTP ), You can use restream application to convert RTSP stream to any devices http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?39

    Hope this helps you

    thanks for your help
    i want to read the stream from http protocol
    when i use wowza silverlight example to show the stream,it does not work
    it reads from the wowza server but does not show the stream! (the stream is downloding from server but silverlight didn't show it)
    the source camera stream is in h.264 format and i follow the instruction given in http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?39 ,but i got nothing

    Hi,
    Did you follow the troubleshooting section in the tutorial?
    The troubleshooting section has some suggestions to try if the stream isn't working.

    I recommend using the ones below first and then trying the others should this not resolve the issue.
    The property blocks are added to the MediaCaster/Properties section of the Application.xml.
    Did you re-start Wowza after making the changes?

    <Property>
        <Name>rtspFilterUnknownTracks</Name>
        <Value>true</Value>
        <Type>Boolean</Type>
    </Property>
    <Property>
        <Name>rtspValidationFrequency</Name>
        <Value>0</Value>
        <Type>Integer</Type>
    </Property>
    Use the SilverLight player in the [Wowza-Install]/examples directory
    Stream: http://[Wowza-IP]:1935/live/camera.stream/Manifest

    lighttpd doesn't accept RTSP as an input. You will need some sort of translator program to read the rtsp stream and output the files to the website storage. I think you could do it with the avconv/ffmpeg program.

    Hi,
    As a followup on this Silverlight player will only work if you have both audio and video in the stream.
    Audio-only or video-only does not work in the Silverlight player.
