    Default not getting image overlay on live streams

    I have configured wowza 3.5 for live and recording (on demand )steam.
    Now I want to display company logo on live and recording stream.
    Added <LiveStreamTranscoder>transcoder</LiveStreamTranscoder> to conf/live/Application.xml

    And modified /transcoder/templates/transrates.xml to add
    1. image path content/img.jpg
    2. set opacity to 50

    Do I need to implement new Transcoder module ? But I don't want any animation . I want to only display image on live and recording stream.

    Hi there,

    You need to use you full path to the image, so your path should look like:
    <ImagePath>${com.wowza.wms.context.VHostConfigHome }/content/img.jpg</ImagePath>

    Make sure you set <Overlay><Enable> to true:
    <Overlay>
    <Enable>true</Enable>
    Also VOD (on demand) is not supported by Wowza Transcoder.

    I used full path only . also copied my jpg image to /home/wowza/content folder.
    I enabled <Overlay> <Enable>true</Enable>.
    my img is of size 90 by 90.

    is there any other configuration which i missed ?

    We are recording when motion happens. and we want to add water mark to recordings also.
    You mean if we are using recording through httpprovider (on demand) , then can not get benifit of this watermarking feature .

    Is there any other way to add watermark to vod recordings through wowza ?

    Are you testing playback of one of the transcoded streams? The source is not transcoded, so it will have no overlay. The transcoded renditions will have the overlay. For example, if the source is named "myStream", trying playing myStream_360p.

    Otherwise, we'll have to take a closer look. Please first re-start Wowza, then start the stream, then test playback of one of the transcoded streams. Then zip up /conf and /transcoder folders and the current access log showing the re-start and tests, and send to support@wowza.com. Include a link to this thread for reference.

    First I want to test overlay for live stream then recording.

    Salvadore mentioned that VOD (on demand) is not supported by Wowza Transcoder . Does it mean that if we are using recording through httpprovider (on demand) , then can not get benifit of this watermarking feature .

    Recording a live stream with HTTPProvider is not video on demand. But you can record a stream that was transcoded with a water mark by the Wowza Transcoder, then play it back later as video on demand. The recording should have the watermark.

    HI there
    That exactly what i want to do.I am new here and i am not so familiar with its function.I want to display image on live and recording stream.But it seems unuseful for me in this area.
    There is indeed some useful solution here.But i want to know that if there is some image program which supports to display the image directly.Thanks for any suggestions.

    Wowza support - I wonder if it is possible to use an image that is externally hosted? Such as on AWS?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    The ImagePath is somewhere on the filesystem. It could be a mountpoint of a network share, or you could create a simple script using wget or curl to fetch an image file via an HTTP call and place it in the ImagePath directory.
