    Default Big delay on the transmision

    Hi!
    I am using the free trial version of wowza for live streaming. But I am facing a few problems. There is a big delay on the transmision of streaming and after a while it stops transmiting. After I refresh the page the player starts and shows the video that was playing a while ago and not the video that the encoder transmits and after a while it stops again.
    What shoul I do to make it work right?

    This can be caused by a lot of things, like:
    - Network problems (too little bandwidth available between your Wowza server and the PC that plays the stream)
    - Your server specs, e.g. slow processor, low memory or hard disk problems

    Check the Access Log (in [install-dir]/logs) for any warnings or errors. If this doesn't help, then write some more information about your configuration.

    Hello and thanks for the reply! I noticed my problem that the folder "content" creates a file "mystream" and pressing the start button from my encoder starts, playing the file saved in advance!

    What's the problem here;

    Also the player after some stops!

    Hello,

    What encoder are you using?
    What player are you playing back in?
    What type of application are you running?

    Can you post your Application.xml file?

    After I refresh the page the player starts and shows the video that was playing a while ago and not the video that the encoder transmits and after a while it stops again.
    Your description at top sounds like the Application.xml /StreamType was "default". That is what happens in that case with live stream.

    What you show above is correct. Make sure it is in the right place:

    /conf/live/Application.xml

    Re-start Wowza, publish to that application and test playback again.
