Having a problem that admittedly is going to probably be hard to chase down. It's intermittent and I can't reproduce it but it is causing major issues. We have hundreds of various H.264 source streams originating from the in browser Flash player coming into various 3.6.x or 4.x Wowza servers. The streams are also viewed by the in browser Flash player. Sometimes the video stream just stops playing on the viewing side. I cannot determine any common thread as there are various camera sources, browsers, etc. It doesn't happen to everyone and it doesn't happen to the same source stream all the time.

I have motion detection going at the source to see if there is video movement (which there is). And I am checking the bytes to see data is heading to the server from the source. On the viewing side, I am checking the buffer and NetStreamInfo and I am getting data coming from the server and the video bytes/sec and video byte count shows changing values each time I poll it every few seconds. So I am getting data to the player, but no video.

Is there anything in particular to look at or has anyone seen anything similar? I'm already doing some things to try to restart the stream at the source if a detect a problem, but at this point all the stats and things I can think of to monitor make it look like the stream is good, even though the video/audio stops or won't play.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
