    Default Basic Transcoder Question

    I have been streaming with Wowza for a little while now. I'm using JW Player on my website and have been using adobe media encoder as well as wirecast. I am also able to use an i-phone to view the streams. I want to use HLS streaming so I got myself a lickey ami and have updated to JW6. I have spent a lot of time on the forums and the tutorials. I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to set-up the player to work with Transcoder. So far no luck. From what I understand, the pre-built ami's have the transcoder ready to go. It seems to me that all I have to do is send the live stream over and put the correct information in the player and all should be fine. Is that the case?

    You will still have to set up the Wowza Transcoder. You can follow this guide to set it up and produce adaptive bitrate streams:
    How to set up and run Wowza Transcoder AddOn for live streaming

    And this guide shows how to play back the ABR streams in JW Player:
