    Default Live stream start up problem


    I has setup a Wowza Streaming Engine 4.0 for trial, after setup the live stream follow the information from this forum, I found a interesting problem.

    In the beginning the live stream is not work, but after I try the record function (Application > live > incoming stream > (record this stream), I can watch the live stream using VLC even I stop the record function.

    After restart the Wowza, same problem again, I need to use the record function to make the live stream start.

    Any idea what is wrong ?

    Thanks for any input.

    Hi there. What guide are you following? And what is your expected results?
    For live streaming please see the appropriate guide here:
    Native RTP (SDP file):
    IP Camera (RTSP/RTP re-streaming):

    If you are trying to record the live stream as well, there are a couple options:
    Easiest would be to change the StreamType for the application from "live" to "live-record"
    Another option is :
    How to record live streams (Wowza Streaming Engine)

    A great place to start would be the Quick Start Guide

    Hi Salvadore, Thanks for your infomation.

    I am following the "How to publish and play a live stream (MPEG-TS based encoder) ", anyway, a server restart seems resolve the problem.
