Dear Wowza team,
I just started to test the new GoCoder app (v 1.0.32) on my HTC One (M8) Smartphone with Android 4.4.3 and found two issues where you could help me, please.
The smartphone has a 5 Megapixel Camera and can record 1920x1080p-Full-HD-Videos.
However, I only get a poor image quality in the GoCoder app on the phone display as well as on the published stream.
The cam of the phone itself is ok and can record bright images.
When I start the GoCoder App, the camera image does not focus to an object and looks itself very blurry.
The video resolution is set to 1280x720px. with 25fps and keyframes after 2 seconds.
Is this a regular behavior and by intention? or can I change something to get a better image quality (I would like to read text from a monitor recording).
Then, I use a broadband WLAN connection to publish and push the stream to a Wowza Media Server v18.104.22.168.
The result is played in a JW6 video player.
With 1000kbps, the video looks extremely blocky.
When I increase the bitrate setting within the GoCoder App to 2500kbps or higher, GoCoder starts to publish the stream for approx. 5 seconds, then stops and restarts the publishing process at 00:00:00.
Our WLAN and Internet connection itself should be capable of handling a stream width an upload bandwith of more than 5MBps.
With 1000kbps everything works fine and the stream is being published continuously without any interruption.
Do you have a hint or an explanation what could generate such an effect?
Thanks in advance
André from Germany
