Is there a way to alert the end user programmatically if an incorrect codec is being used on the encoder? I use the real-time transcoder heavily and it doesn't take mp3 or vp6. Customers sometimes don't know enough to understand that the proper codec must be used on the encoder so I would like to make this fool proof so that the transcoder always works.
I was thinking that if I know the stream name and the application name, I can make a call to Wowza via HTTP or some type of API that would return back the codecs being used for that particular stream. Then I could programmatically alert the end user through a separate web interface that the codec is wrong and to fix it.
