    Default Forwarding live stream publishing / Authentication

    Hi I have a client that needs to publish to the live streaming service via RTMP, however I would like to proxy this request as I do not want the client to know about the server's username and password. I would like the client to connect to my own service and pass through a token that will be validated using my own authentication rules, if the validation succeeds then I would forward the request to the real RTMP endpoint passing through the right credentials.

    Alternatively is there any way in Wowza for a client to publish to the live streaming service without passing through the credentials as part of the request and instead use my own authentication rules to validate the client request?.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't think you can proxy rtmp.

    But there are different ways to do encoder authentication. For a live rtmp encoder that supports rtmp authentication, you can use ModuleRTMPAuthenticate along with this method to authenticate using external system, e.g. a database.

If not, please do so using the URL listed below. The next step will be to install Wowza server and work through the live and video on demand tutorials.
