I’m quite a new user of streaming technology and I obviously need some guidance.
I have a Wowza Server running on Amazon. I’m using Wirecast as encoder software and I transmit the recorded stream to the Wowza Streaming Engine using destination “RMTP-server” and address “rtmp://<my-ip>:1935/live”. Encoding format is Flash/x264.
I player I’m using JW-Player and source set to “rtmp://<my-ip>:1935/live/liveStream”.
It works fine in IE, Crome, iPhone and Andoid.
I’m only using live-streaming.
I my choice of protocols a bad choice (I can see on the Internet, that some recommend HLS as the best protocol).
If I would like to use HLS, do I then need to apply the Transcoder AddOn.
Can you recommend some reading that can help me understand the world of streaming-protocols
