    Default Restarting the Stream

    Hi,

    We have an account with Wowza and I had a question regarding the restarting of the streams. The issue is that when we restart the stream, all the streams start again but the recording on them do not start. We have to manually start all the individual streams. Is there a way to make them start automatically when we reset the stream?

    Thank you

    Hello there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

    You can set the application to always record all incoming streams:
    Via the Engine Manager go to "Applications/Application(Live for example)/Setup/Edit" and choose "record all incoming streams"

    You can also do this through the .xml file:
    [install-dir]/conf/[your-app]/Application.xml and set <Streams>/<StreamType>live-record</StreamType>.

    Kind regards,

    Salvadore

    Hi

    Thank you for your reply. I see the .xml file and change to live-record, but there is a question that when I manually start the stream I have to set the path to a folder in K drive and by default the path is set to C drive. I addition, I set the recording by duration of 20 minutes. Is there a way to set that as well so that I don't have to do it again and again?

    Thank you

    You can add these two properties to the Application.xml file:
    <Property>
        <Name>liveStreamRecordSegmentDuration</Name>
        <Value>Time-in-Miliseconds</Value>
        <Type>long</Type>
    </Property>
    And:
    <Property>
        <Name>liveStreamRecordFilePath</Name>
        <Value>c:/content</Value>
        <Type>String</Type>
    </Property>
    Take a look at this guide for more information:

    Kind regards,
