    Hi there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

    That is the correct guide. What issues are you having?

    Make sure the application running the schedule is a "Live" application. Create the .smil file named "streamschedule.smil"and add it to the [install-dir]/content folder.

    With this as a reference of the .smil file:
            <stream name="Stream1"></stream>
            <playlist name="pl1" playOnStream="Stream1" repeat="true" scheduled="2013-09-25 16:00:00">
                <video src="mp4:sample.mp4" start="5" length="5"/>        
    You would use "Stream1" as the stream name. For example, for iOS:

    It looks like you are using the wrong stream name here. Try this (Assuming you set this up according to the guide):
    You need the .smil file, along with all the video files you refer to in the .smil file, located in the /content folder.

    Follow the guide you linked to in your first post, get it working with the sample.mp4 file, then make sure the videos you want to stream are in the content folder, and change the smile from this:
    <video src="mp4:sample.mp4" start="5" length="5"/>
    To something like this:
    <video src="mp4:you-file.mp4" start="5" length="5"/>
