    Default Start/stop MediaCasterStream via rest api?

    There's an example of how to start/stop a mediacaster stream via server-side java:

    I found this: - which allows me to enumerate config details, but nothing apparent for control.

    Can someone please provide an example to control a mediacaster stream via rest api?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Mark

    It sounds as though you want to connect a stream file. In a simple curl example:

    curl -X PUT --header 'Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8' --header 'Content-type:application/json; charset=utf-8' "http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_defaultServer_/vhosts/_defaultVHost_/streamfiles/[streamfilename]/actions/connect?connectAppName=[app-name]&appInstance=_definst_&mediaCasterType=rtp"
    To use the REST API, you'll need to have the appropriate license. Please see the following guide.
