    Default Raw YUV input to WMS


    I am planning to create a Raw YUV sequence and feed that as input stream to Wowza Media Server. My YUV sequence is dynamically generated image frames. I will then use Wowza's capability to use NVidia CUDA/hardware accelerated encoder for faster encoding. I believe YUV input to Wowza (and so to NVidia encoding SDK that Wowza is using internally) would be optimized pipeline. I've two questions:
    1. Wowza supports raw YUV sequence as input?
    2. My assumption about optimized pipeline is correct?

    Thanks in advance,

    This is possible but you would need to use the Wowza transcoder and use the overlay functionality to put in the image frames. It would be quite tricky, but do-able and very CPU/GPU intensive. Wowza does support the use of buffered images and I would recommend some reading here

    It would take some putting together as to maintain speed you would need to have multiple threads creating overlays, adding images etc.
