    Default how to configure RTSP/RTP multicast streaming

    Dear Sir,
    Can I ask if it is possible to configure the Wowza media server to do RTSP/RTP multicast streaming?
    I know it supports two types of transport mode, udp-unicast and tcp-interleaved.
    I'm wondering if it also supports multicast. What I mean is RTP multicast when it works for RTSP server.

    Thanks in advance.
    Phillip Lee.

    Hi,
    Multicast is supported with the use of the PushPublish function, detailed here:
    You'll find a section there regarding the Realtime Transport Protocol.

    What happens is you configure this to recognize your incoming stream, via a map file,
    and in turn the stream is re-broadcast as a multicast rtp stream. This can be played by
    rtsp player such as VLC and QuickTime.

    Dear Sir,


    Thank your for your quick reply.

    I have another question. In your answer, I got to know ModulePush is required for the RTSP/RTP multicast streaming. I have purchased a copy of Wowza media server 3.6.2.
    Does it support ModulePush? Or do I need to purchase some AddOn package?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Brian,
    Yes, there's more information here for Wowza Media Server 3.6.x users:
    You need to click on the "AddOn Request Form" link on that page to get the AddOn.
    The Plugin/AddOn is free, but you have to request using the form.

    Best regards,
    Daren
