    Default Video in content folder not picked up

    I have a video in the content folder, BornToBeWild_New_20minClip_15_to_925.mpg

    When I go to the proper streaming URL: http://173.9.149.246:1935/Movies/mp4.../playlist.m3u8 I get a 404 error.

    In the logs I see:
    MediaReaderH264.open[Movies/_definst_]: Not found: H:/Movies/SC - Movies/BornToBeWild_New_20minClip_15_to_925.: java.io.FileNotFoundException: H:\Movies\SC - Movies\BornToBeWild_New_20minClip_15_to_925 (The system cannot find the file specified)|at java.io.RandomAccessFile.open(Native Method)|at java.io.RandomAccessFile.(Unknown Source)|at com.wowza.io.WowzaRandomAccessFile.(WowzaRandomAccessFile.java:12)|at com.wowza.io.DirectRandomAccessReader.open(DirectRandomAccessReader.java:236)|at com.wowza.wms.mediareader.h264.MediaReaderH264.open(MediaReaderH264.java:252)|
    Other movies play fine, just the new ones added recently get the 404 errors.

    Please help!

    I see a couple issues. One, you need a append a .mp4 extension to the stream name. You have:
    http://173.9.149.246:1935/Movies/mp4:BornToBeWild_New_20minClip_15_to_925/playlist.m3u8
    It should be:
    http://173.9.149.246:1935/Movies/mp4:BornToBeWild_New_20minClip_15_to_925.mp4/playlist.m3u8
    Second, take a look at the specs page:
    http://wowza.com/specs.html

    .mpg is not supported for VOD. Transcode to a quicktime container (.mp4, .m4v, .mov)

    Default Thanks

    Thanks for the prompt reply. We got it working by converting to mp4 and adding the extension.
