    Question Live App RTMP Set-up Confusion

    Dear Forum Members,

    I am new to wowza streaming engine and am evaluating v4.2 on windows.

    I followed these instructions:

    What confuses me are the details that I enter into my source server that I want to stream to wowza. From the guide it says:
    Server URL: rtmp://[wowza-ip-address]/live
    Stream Name: myStream
    User: publisherName
    password: [password]

    1. Where is "Stream Name" configured?

    2. If my stream name is "surf1", I must use this url in VLC: rtmp://[wowza-ip-address]:1935/surf1/surf1
    Why must I repeat Stream Name in url?

    3. In my server that is streaming to the wowza, I specify "RTMP Target URI:" rtmp://[wowza-ip-address]/surf1
    "RTMP Public Stream Name:" surf1
    And also the RTMP Username & RTMP Password.

    I had to play with the settings and URLs a lot to figure out what worked. I think I am confused about how this is working.

    Thank you!

    Hello there.

    For clarity, lets say you are using Flash Media Live Encoder(FMLE) to publish a live stream to Wowza.

    Assuming you followed the guide you linked to, when publishing a stream to Wowza from FMLE, you will be prompted for the username and password. Use the credentials that you entered while configuring your application for username and password.

    The stream name is determined by what you name the stream in FLME, for instance when publishing a stream you enter a name in the "Stream" parameter, lets say "myStream"

    You will also need to specify the application you are publishing to. So in FMLE it asks for the "FMS URL" This should look something like this " rtmp://[wowza-ip-address]:1935/live

    Once the stream is published, you can test playback with the Wowza example RTMP player. The URL should look like this:
    Server rtmp://wowza-ip/live
    Stream myStream
    For playback in iOS player it would look like this

    I hope this helps.
