Hello I need some help with livestreamrecord recording via http url c# calls,

I can start and stop a stream recording using:


When inputting it directly in to a browser but when I try to do the same from c# on a webpage nothing happens.

HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://[username]:[password]@[wowza-ip-address]:8086/livestreamrecord?app=live&streamname=myStream&action=startRecording);
        request.Method = "GET";
        request.Proxy = new WebProxy("[wowza-ip-address]", 8086);
        request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("[username]", "[password]");        
        request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
        HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
        Stream stm = response.GetResponseStream();
When I first tried to set it up I kept getting 401 unauthorized error which the code above no long throws, but now I'm stuck as no error is thrown and still no recording is started.
