    Default generate smil does not work

    I followed these instructions , for example I did this where my IP is there ( at time of writing) and the streamname is livestream

    I get nothing but empty smil contents below


    I create my own smil and it works but prefer to save the time

    <video src="livestream_source" height="360" system-bitrate="1000000"/>
    <video src="livestream_360p" height="360" system-bitrate="850000"/>
    <video src="livestream_240p" height="240" system-bitrate="350000"/>
    <video src="livestream_160p" height="160" system-bitrate="200000"/>

    Hi there.
    The article you are referencing for generating SMIL files with streams created by Wowza Transcoder is designed to be used with origin/edge configurations. Since ngrp do not get forwarded to the edge. The idea is that with this tool you can create a SMIL from using the medialist tool on the origin and create a file that you host in the content folder on the edge.

    It will not will work otherwise.

    Thank you Salvadore. that explains it, strange why there is no mention of that in the article. I am not using an edge so I have to build it myself then.
