    Default iOS MP3 - wowza 3.6 transcode

    I have been running a monthly license with no add ons on a wowza 3.6 for a couple years. Our streamers have always used h264/AAC no problems as we understood this was the only way to steam to iOS without transcoding. I had a chance to uses a Windows machine and fmle, to my surprise h264/MP3 baseline 3.2 works just fine with iOS. When wowza 4 came along they sent me a new license, my question is did they toss in the Add ons (transcode) with the new license or has iOS now changed to allow MP3 in the live stream?

    Hello there.

    iOS has supported MP3. It is best to use MP3 at 44100Hz, 128kbs. Take a look at table 1.1 here

    And yes, Wowza now includes the Wowza Transcoder with the monthly license as of version 4.0. No additional licenses are needed for Transcoder.
