    Default Can an audio on demand application automatically transcode/transmux uploaded files?

    I'm been going through all the documentation and also installed the streaming media engine onto an Amazon EC2 instance. It's all working OK however I'm having problems finding out what is possible. I understand that you can setup a live streaming application to transcode / transmux live audio streams and redistribute them in different formats on the fly BUT there doesn't appear to be any information on how to do a similar thing with an audio on demand application (VOD).

    So my question is ...

    Can you setup the server to create different audio formats (transmux / transcode) when an audio file is uploaded to the content directory of the server? For example we have Drupal CMS that allows users to upload mp3 files to the Wowza server and we require them to be automatically converted to mp4a for playback.

    Hello there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

    At present the Wowza Transcoder does not support VOD transcoding. You can however use FFMPEG:
