    Default Streaming application from Wowza 3x doesn't work on Wowza 4x

    Hello.

    We have started to use Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.2 instead of Wowza 3.6.4. And we trying to move our application to Wowza 4.1.2. The problem is, that video recording doesn't work on Wowza 4.1.2. We have two configurations of Application.xml.

    Application.xml from Wowza 3x and using in Wowza 4x:

    In this configuration video is not recorded and we get the WARN from logs:
    WARN  [_defaultVHost_.live.example] LiveReceiver.flushPacketizerDelayCommand[live/example/]: Stream name is missing or too long, flushing delayed packet.
    Can you help us and give some advice, may be we have missed something.

    Thanks!

    Default

    Hi,
    Please create all applications using Wowza Streaming Engine Manager to ensure they are created correctly.
    The configuration files between Wowza Media Server 3 and Wowza Streaming Engine 4 are different and not fully compatible as using old XML files will have missing information.

    The default in Wowza Streaming Engine is to record files in MP4 format which is a change from FLV in over versions. Please see the following article for recording live streams or select "Options/Record all incoming streams" when creating or editing the application using Wowza Streaming Engine Manager. You can change the default recording to FLV if required using the "Server > Server Setup" page in the Manager.
