I have two questions. First, during a stream today using the West Coast (Oregon) RTMP location, we were sending a 550 or so Kbps stream to the Wowza Oregon server through a wired high-speed Internet connection in B.C..
Strangely, the Inbound Bitrate on the Wowza dashboard was showing about 330 Kbps inbound and the player (JW Player) was breaking up onscreen regularly at 360p but working fine at 288p. Obviously, our full 500+ stream wasn't making it inbound. Any thoughts as to why? And, how can we avoid this in the future?
Second, during another broadcast, we were sending an approx. 760 Kbps stream to the Wowza server and the dashboard showed the Actual Outbound as exceeding the Configured Outbound. We noticed this before the show and dropped the inbound bitrate down so as to not cause potential problems (after which the Actual Outbound was below the Configured Outbound). My second question is, would there have been any problems if the Actual Outbound exceeded the Configured Outbound?
