Thread: Live streaming on EC2

  1. #1

    Default Live streaming on EC2

    Hello, I just set up an EC2 instance of wowza3.

    I got it set up fine.
    I could ftp to it... and SSH to it with no problem.
    I could run the stream manager with no problem and all my streams started.

    Here is what I did.

    I took the "important" files from an existing wowza install and FTP'd them to this EC2 instance.
    content/camera.stream
    conf/admin.password
    conf/application.xml
    conf/startupstreams.xml
    conf/server.license.

    I just could not get my live video from my camera.stream file to play.

    I tested the stream that I have in camera.stream using another wowza install and it works fine.

    Any idea what I could be missing?

    I was sure to restart wowza after uploading the files etc.

    This code works with my other wowza installs that are NON EC2.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    jwplayer("player1").setup({
    playlist: [{
    image: "poster.gif",
    sources: [{
    file: "http://ec2-184-72-245-29.compute-1.amazonaws.com:1935/live/camera1.stream/playlist.m3u8"
    },{
    file: "rtmp://ec2-184-72-245-29.compute-1.amazonaws.com:1935/live/camera1.stream"
    }]
    }],
    autostart: true,
    primary: "flash"
    });
    </script>


    Any idea what I missed?

    Thanks

    Here is one thing I can think of.
    The EC2 instance was Linux....

    The wowza install I copied the files from was Windows.

    Would that matter?

    make sure your security settings on those EC2 allow the ports you need to for streaming out. Check on the console/logs if the streams are published and if a connection can be made. You can easily tests if ports are open by telnet to them
