    Hello there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

    This guide explains how to use FFMPEG as a live stream encoder with Wowza Media Server:
    How to use FFmpeg with Wowza Streaming Engine (MPEG-TS)

    The problem of using MPEG-TS over udp instead RTSP is that you can lost packets even when you have enough bandwidth in your connection (e.g. a single one wifi interference can lost udp packets and won't be resend in mpeg-ts over udp).

    You can try GStreamer instead ffmpeg for the same purpose.

    I believe that lasimov meant sending over UDP vs TCP, you can loose packets which is true. If your goal is to have a low latency connection that during a loss of packets restores closest to the actual time, UDP streams would give you this. If your more concerned about packet loss and don't mind a potential drift in latency, then TCP would be a better choice. RTSP can be delivered using both protocols.

    Best regards,
