Hi,

I have opened the bunny example video from VLC and I am trying to re-stream it with Wowza. What I do is start broadcasting it with VLC, with this settings:

:sout=#transcode{vcodec=h264,acodec=mpga,ab=128,channels=2,samplerate=44100}:duplicate{dst=rtp{sdp=rtsp://:8554/bunny},dst=display} :sout-all :sout-keep
Also tried adding mux=ts to the rtp{} part.

I can open it from an other VLC instance and watch the movie. Then I created an application, and set it up based on the articles (rtp), add the stream file (rtsp://localhost:8554/bunny), connect to the stream successfully, etc.

Then I try to open it from the FLASH test player and it's only black. Says successfully published stream, but nothing gets played. This is what I see in the logs:

Can you tell me what's this stream not healthy thing?

I have seen this very old thread, http://www.wowza.com/forums/showthre...om-VLC-problem but this is not serious support, saying "you may have more success with that", and not explaining based on the specs and docs why this would not work and why that would work. And finally the thread ends without any resolution.

Thanks,
