Thread: Overlaying videos

  1. #1

    Default Overlaying videos


    Is there a way in Wowza 3.5+ Server API to overlay pre-existing MP4 video over live transcoder streams? If it is not possible, is there a way to temporarily switch from showing live stream to showing pre-recorded video and when video is over switch back to live stream?

    Thank you

    It sounds like you are looking for a way to pre-roll a live stream with a file in a loop until the live broadcast starts. Check out the following:

    Thank you. It is close but not exactly what I wanted to do. The use case is playing ads. Live stream is getting transcoded and recorded. I would like to make video ad a part of the recording just like it is done with static images using transcoder add-on. is this possible in the current version of Wowza?

    It sounds like it should still work. I believe the recording should contain the pre-roll, live stream, and then any post-roll as well.
