    Question Multicast streaming in corporate LAN

    Hi,

    We're planning to use Wowza streaming server to have multicast streaming over RTSP or HTTP in a corporate LAN.

    However after googling I found not many articles or official documentations on how to implement multicast streaming in Wowza.

    So any help on this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Tom, and welcome to the Wowza forum!

    You can use Push Publishing to achieve this:

    Let us know how we can assist you in the future.

    My situation is that I would like to setup a playlist which contains videos that are scheduled to play at certain time.
    And I would like this playlist to be streamed over RTSP or HTTP in a multicast environment.

    I've been racking my brain to get this solved even after reading the article above.

    So any suggestion on my scenario?

    Thank you!

    Thanks.

    I have created a playlist that is scheduled to play at certain time.
    Below is the playlist I created:
    <stream name="Stream1"></stream>

    <playlist name="pl1" playOnStream="Stream1" repeat="true" scheduled="2014-07-04 16:00:00">
    <video src="mp4:sample1.mp4" start="0" length="-1"/>
    <video src="mp4:sample2.mp4" start="0" length="-1"/>
    </playlist>
    The above playlist will start at 4 Jul 4PM, and keep repeating itself.

    However, what should I do if I want to insert a video source from encoder(say, FMLE) to that stream(Stream1) in case I would like to broadcast some breaking news to the users?

    The flow should be as follows:

    Tom, have a look at this guide, it sounds like it will suit your needs:

    Hi,

    Thanks Salvadore, that's a great module that I can use to meet my needs.

    However, what should I do in the following situation?

    Stream1 is playing scheduled videos (for instance, when live source comes in, it was playing 05:00 of item 2 in the playlist).
    When live source ends, how to I configure it so that it can return to 05:01 of item 2 in the playlist?

    Sorry for my bad English. I hope you can understand. Thx
