Thread: Live Streaming from IP Camera to HLS protocol

    Question Live Streaming from IP Camera to HLS protocol

    Hi there,

    I'm having some trouble to configure wowza to perform an IP camera streaming live to the HLS protocol for use on Apple devices.
    Basically, my setup has 2 applications, with the names "live" and "ios" .
    The application called "live" should perform the RTMP streaming to Web-ased devices with flash player.
    The application called "ios" should perform the streaming to Apple devices using HLS protocol.

    The reason for having two separate applications is that not all cameras configured on this server will need the Cupertino support enabled,
    so it is more practical to keep the RTMP application as type "rtp-live" to not need to publish their .streams files.
    The "ios" application is type "live" and only the cameras that need support Cupertino must have published the stream via StreamManager when needed .

    Both applications use the same folder "content " to look for the files .stream file sources of IP cameras.

    The problem is that the RTMP application works fine All .stream files created in the /content/ folder are accessed seamlessly through the url rtmp://<server>:1935/live/file.stream.
    However, after publishing the same file in the another application called "ios" , can not access the stream through http://<server>: 1935/ios/file.stream/playlist.m3u8

    Checking files for Wowza log, the following error appears:

    I can download the file playlist.m3u8, and I can see this makes internal references to "chunklist<number>.m3u8" but this apparently does not exist.

    I'm using Wowza Media Server 3 Monthly Edition 3.6.2.09 build6171 version on Amazon EC2 .

    Here are the configuration files of both applications :

    We can take a closer look. Focusing on what does not work, the "ios" application, do a short test and send us the results. First restart Wowza so we can see startup lines in the logs, then start one of the IP camera streams using a .stream file in StreamManager, then try to playback the cupertino stream in an iOS device, or you can test with VLC.

    Then zip up the current access log and the whole /conf folder and send to support@wowza.com. Include a link to this thread for reference

    Thank You, Richard.

    The process to test was done, and the e-mail sent.
