What is Live Streaming?

Live Streaming is an audio or video stream that is played back in real time, rather than from the beginning; it is always in progress. A live stream  does not support pause, seek, or rewind functions.

The source of a live stream can originate from a live encoder, but it can also come from a static file. The Wowza scheduling function allows files to be used as the source of a live stream.
