    Default udp transcoding

    I'm getting a udp stream pushed directly to my server from a provider.
    I need to convert the stream into rtmp stream to broadcast it on my devices.
    I can't seem to get it to work.

    I configured a stream file .
    I clicked on connect to the stream and it says connected.
    I went to the incoming stream tab and I have the following :
     ======> udp:// Active
    When I click on test player and select the rtmp player. It says playing but I have no image.
    I have been told there is a possibility I might need to have the stream transcoded. I went to the transcoder section and set it up there but don't know what to do next.

    Can you please tell me what I need to do ?
    How do I even test the udp stream on my server to ensure i'm even receiving it?

    Hello there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

    Wowza can ingest a UDP source and create a RTMP stream without VLC player or the transcoder. Please see the following article for ingesting the source using a .stream file.
    How to create and use .stream files in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager

    If you're looking to use the Wowza transcoder which is for creating one or multiple lower complexity renditions and/or changing the codec of the source stream, please see the Wowza transcoder tutorial.

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
