    Default QuickSync, XAuthority, and Ubuntu 12.04.3

    Hello,

    Is there by chance an update to the guide for utilizing Quicksync with Ubuntu? Apparently there is no longer an .Xauthority file in the root directory that your current guide expects...

    Thank You

    Hi Kevin,
    We responded to your ticket regarding this.

    With this version of Ubuntu (12.04.3) you can actually skip step 3 altogether.
    Step 3. "Configure access to the X11 system for the root user" should actually be skipped completely.
    You need to be logged into the desktop, then you can just start a terminal and start Wowza as normal.

    The Wowza Transcoder AddOn runs and uses QuickSync both for the root and for a normal user.

    We'll update the guide for this as appropriate.

    Daren
