    Default Live streaming that works for both mobile and desktop inquiry

    Hi all,

    We are using Wirecast to stream to our Wowza media server using RTMP. RTMP is flash only - and now that we have a requirement to support mobile devices, such as the iPhone, that do not have flash on it, we're kind of in a predicament. Ideally we'll still be able to do a live stream using another protocol so we can have an HTML5 player instead of Flash. Not entirely sure what we should be looking at however. Anyone with wirecast live streaming experience, is it currently possible to stream some kind of other protocol than RTMP to our Wowza server so we can support both iPhone and desktop browsers? We just want a player that's able to accommodate both mobile devices and desktop devices for live streaming. Whatever is needed to adjust on the wirecast end + wowza end is the information/tutorial I'm looking for.

    Thank you for any insight.

    Hi there,

    Have a look at this article:
    How to set up live streaming using an RTMP-based encoder

    Note in the "Playback" section of this article, it gives example URL's for iOS and Silverlight devices. It also explains what video and audio settings are required by mobile clients.

    You will also want to set up Adaptive bit rate streaming using the Wowza Transcoder Addon to deliver the highest quality stream to all devices.
