    Default Streaming MP4 file on set time


    I have a pre-recorded video in MP4 format. I need to to stream it to wowza on given time. My current
    solution is to have following command run at specific time:

    ffmpeg -re -i /usr/local/WowzaStreamingEngine/content/xxx.mp4  -vcodec copy -acodec copy -vbsf h264_mp4toannexb -strict experimental -f mpegts udp://
    I do it with "at" scheudler. But now I wanted to try SMIL files as it seemed a little bit easier. My SMIL file is:

            <stream name="Stream1"></stream>
            <playlist name="pl1" playOnStream="Stream1" repeat="true" scheduled="2014-11-10 21:03:00">
                <video src="mp4:xxx.mp4:" start="0" length="-1"/>
    I import that file with Manager and start it. But nothing happens. In my understanding i should point our
    player to rtsp://ip:1935/live/Stream1

    But is says that it did not found that stream. Also in manager in "Incoming streams" i see:

    Connections Per Protocol outgoing
