Thread: Redundand RTSP/RTMP/HTTP live stream pulling

  1. Default Redundand RTSP/RTMP/HTTP live stream pulling


    in Wowza version 3.6 we use the stream name alias on the origin Wowza server with the following content in the file (streaming)

    We have a custom delimiter '!' in the config. So this line will instruct Wowza 3.6 to get the stream from source1 when a viewer requests the stream. If source1 goes down, Wowza can try source2. This is all done on the Wowza server that is configured as origin. This works like a charm in Wowza 3.6

    With Wowza 4, this is broken! I say that it is broken, because this is a hugh issue, where we cannot guarantee redundancy anymore for remote pulling. Why has this been removed from Wowza 4? Also working with a .stream file with multiple sources in the 'uri' parameter, does not work. Wowza reports the following error:

    RTPSessionDescriptionDataProviderBasicRTSPWorker.doConnect: convert : Illegal character in query at index 93: rtsp://viewer:viewer@|rtsp://viewer:viewer@|at$|at$Parser.checkChars(|at$Parser.parseHierarchical(|at$Parser.parse(|at<init>(|
    And yesh, the url is not a valid url because of the '|' sign. But this has always been working. And this does work on a server that is an edge/repeater server. So in the edge/repeater server you can specify a stream name with multiple sources. Why is this not possible with an origin server anymore?

  2. Default

    Is there anybody from Wowza than can clarify the above?

  3. Default

    My bad. For RTSP and HTTP it is not possible.

    Works only for RTMP.

    Would be a nice feature to have for RTSP and HTTP (IceCast) sources.
