    Lightbulb How to Stop an ongoing stream using HTTPprovider ?


    I want to stop an ongoing stream using HTTPprovider. So that from an external script I can control that. Please, advice.

    Actually I want to restrict unwanted stream from being publish.

    Hi Andrew,

    Thank you for your great help. But still HTTP://[wowza-ip]:8086/ban showing only Server version. These are the following steps I followed.

    1. I download from and put wms-plugin-collection.jar file at /lib

    2. Add com.wowza.wms.plugin.collection.serverlistener.ServerListenerBanStreams at Server > Server Setup > Server Listener

    3. Don't want to keep ban list so I had not those properties at Application's propertiey panel.

    4. then I add


    at /conf/VHost.xml

    then restart the server, but still not working. I think, I made some mistake. Please help (I am using Wowza 4.2)

    Thank you

    p.s. I fixed I put the HTTPProvider after HTTPServerVersion. now I just put that before HTTPServerVersion and its working just fine . Thank you.

    Hi Projjwal,

    If you are seeing the Server version when calling http://[wowza-ip-address]:8086/ban URL, then your HTTPProviderBanStreams is likely in the incorrect order.

    Make sure that you have this HTTPProvider as the last in the list:
    This is the catch-all for all URL requests. Any HTTPProvider added after this entry will not be recognized.
