    Default Publish Stream to a Default Application in Wowza Streaming Engine

    Hello,

    I'd like to know if there is any possibility to push a live stream to a default application, that is, if one could push a stream without specifying the application name in the stream URL. For instance :

    Instead of writing

    http://[hostname]:[port]/[application]/[appInstance]/[streamName]
    one would write

    http://[hostname]:[port]/[appInstance]/[streamName]
    The default application would have custom modules and specific properties. The rationale behind this is to use the simplest streaming url possible.

    Is it possible to do such a thing with Wowza Streaming Engine 4.2 ? If so, what would be the required steps ?

    Thanks in advance for any help or/and insight !

    Default

    Hello there.

    It is possible to create an application called "_defapp_" which would be the default application that would be used when no application name is specified.

    In this case, you could then reference the VODs using a streaming URL like you have mentioned in your previous post.
    For example, and Apple HLS stream would look something like this:
    http://WowzaIP:1935/mp4:sample.mp4/playlist.m3u8

    Default

    Hello ! Thanks a lot for your reply. I will try with this application name.

    From your knowledge, is this "_defapp_" application a regular one ? That is, can I create it from the manager interface and then override the Application.xml configuration file if needed (to load custom modules for instance) ? Or do I have to create it manually (creating dedicated folders and files inside main Wowza folders) ?

    Thanks again for your help !

    Yes, you can create this application from the Engine Manager interface, and then modify the Application.xml file.

    I should mention, I only tested this as a VOD application. It may take a little fine tuning to make it a "universal" default application that will work for VOD and live. If that's even possible. I will play with this, and you can test things out as well.
