    Default Issue with RTMPS


    We have few Wowza AMI instances and I recently learned that we are not eligible for the free StreamLock certificate. But I found the following article: that lists the steps for SSL certificate. We have a wild card certificate from GoDaddy (normal crt for our top level domain) and I tried to import them into our wowza instance (using keytool). but for some reason RTMPS or for that matter SSL streaming doesn't seem to work. The following are the steps I took

    sudo keytool -import -alias root -trustcacerts -file chain.crt -keypass keypass -keystore <keystore_name> -storepass <password>

    sudo keytool -import -alias wowza -trustcacerts -file wild-card.crt -keypass keypass -keystore <keystore_name> -storepass <password>

    Modified VHost through the admin panel

    The logs don't indicate any connection or any output when we try to play those videos.

    Any help would be appreciated.
