I've created a multicast rtp stream using ffserver, with the following configuration:
ACL allow 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.255
Launch ffmpeg -i "rtsp://192.168.71.68/h264/ch1/sub/" -s:v 1024x768
# Access with http://localhost:8081/hikvision-rtp.sdp
This stream comes from a netcam. ffserver does multicast the stream and I can play it correctly from vlc (with the url http://localhost:8081/hikvision-rtp.sdp).
I then copied the sdp file to wowza, putting it in the content directory, and fired up the stream. So far so good.
I have the wowza transcoder enabled, and I can play via vlc the *transcoded* resulting streams, via rtmp, in vlc. For example:
rtmp://localhost:1935/live/hikvision-rtp.sdp_160p plays just fine.
I am not able to play: rtmp://localhost:1935/live/hikvision-rtp.sdp. For some reason that wowza stream doesn't play in vlc.
My question is, why?
Thanks for help!!!
