Had a look around on the forums but I'm not sure anybody has gotten this working (and I guess Wowza doesn't support it), but I thought I'd open a thread anyway.
We currently have many (50+) streams coming in via multicast (ffprobe):
And we are using Wowza to turn them into unicast rtsp streams for our set top boxes (+ add some access control with our custom token system). This works great for the streams with mpeg2 audio, but ac3 audio doesn't seem to passthrough to the rtp stream:
Stream #0:0[0x1389]: Video: h264 (High) ( / 0x001B), yuv420p(tv, bt709), 1920x1080 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], 25 fps, 25 tbr, 90k tbn, 50 tbc
Stream #0:1[0x1394]: Audio: ac3 ( / 0x0006), 48000 Hz, 5.1(side), fltp, 384 kb/s
RTP should support AC3 as there is no protocol specified codec and our STB can decode AC3 aswell. Is there any way to get this working with Wowza?
RTPPlayer.describe: No audio packetizer: AC3
Since we are a startup iptv provider we really don't have the capital to invest in nice elemental transcoders to solve the problem. Each stream is approx 13Mbit/s (audio+video) so Wowza transcoder isn't really an option either.
But no luck.
Many thanks to all
(Related thread: https://www.wowza.com/forums/showthread.php?38202 but here they want to output HLS/Dash, which works, but our STB's can't do).
