    Default Turn on transcoder for webcamrecording application

    Hi all,

    I'm newbie to Wowza. As per my needs, I need to record a video with H.264 and AAC support and use this video for further usage.
    When I record a video, it is being recorded with H.264 and audio codec speex but I need AAC. I heard that to do this I can use Transcoder.
    I have tried to configure this by making changes to Application.xml for webcamrecording. But not working.
    Can any one please suggest me to turning on transcoder for webcamrecording application so that recorded video will be in H.264 and AAC?

    Thanks for your reply. It helps me to configure transcoder for videochating application.

    All my recorded videos using webcamrecording application are in H.264 and Speex but I need AAC as audio codec because I use these recorded videos in other application which supports only H.264 and AAC videos.
    If I do not use transcoder, I again need to convert recorded video using FFMPEG to get H.264 and AAC.
    Is it possible to enable transcoder for webcamrecording application too?
    Is there any way to avoid record videos in H.264 and AAC to avoid re-encoding the same video?

    Once you send the stream through the Transcoder you can use:
