    Default mounting live streams to wowza4

    hi guys,

    I am running wowza 4.0 and one of our partner exposes live streams using http protocol for mpeg-ts and hls format.

    How can i mount above streams to wowza so i can serve them on different platforms used by our customers (android, ios, web:rtmp) if i need to transcode them using wowza encoder addon that is available free with wowza 4 then let me know and give me some points how to configure it.

    HLS is not a supported input format but mpeg-ts is. You can make use of a stream file to pull an mpeg-ts stream into Wowza Streaming Engine and stream to the different platforms mentioned.

    I suggest that you configure the transcoder in order to do Adaptive Bitrate streaming. This will provide lower resolution/bitrate streams for mobile devices and players with low bandwidth connections. You may find the following articles helpful in setting up this process:

    Wowza Streaming Engine can't ingest video streams using HTTP protocol.
    For MPEG-TS you'll need to use UDP in the .stream file.

    One technique would be to use FFMPEG to restream into Wowza Streaming Engine. See this guide more more information on possible commands.

    There's also a third party module that could do it available here.
