    Default In which condition Wowza have to use Stream Manager to pull upstream

    Hi,
    In some articles (like this article and this), wowza uses stream manager to pull upstream. But in most other articles the upstream is pushed by encoder. Can someone give me a instance to easy understand the condition that use stream server rather than driving by publisher

    As you've seen, some of the more common use-cases are re-streaming IP Cameras (RTSP/RTP streams) and Shoutcast or Icecast streams. It simply pulls the stream from the source and makes it availble for streaming to the many of players supported by Wowza.

    Hi,

    What's the criteria to pull stream by stream manager or push stream by encoder?
    What's special for IP Cam case so Wowza considers it should use stream manager ?

    This depends on the encoder capabilities. Encoders ca push a stream to a streaming server, or they can expect streaming clients to pull the stream from them.
    Some encoders can do one or the other, or even both.
    Most IP cameras provide a RTSP URL so that whoever wants to connect to it, can pull the stream using that URL.
