Wowza Streaming Engine AddOns
Dynamic Load Balancer
The Dynamic Load Balancing AddOn package provides a method for dynamically distributing connection load between multiple Wowza Streaming Engine™ edge servers. Dynamic Load Balancing is essential for efficient distribution of connection requests to the least loaded servers when deploying networks of multiple edge servers.
The Dynamic Load Balancing AddOn for Wowza Streaming Engine supports redirection over HTTP, RTMP, and RTSP protocols to edge servers that have available bandwidth or connections. It also supports geographic load balancing so that clients are redirected to available edge servers in specific geographic regions.
The Central Configuration AddOn provides a system for managing hundreds of instances of Wowza Streaming Engine software in a complex environment from a central location. The system can be modified to fit most CDN and service provider environments.
*Note: Central Configuration does not work with Wowza Streaming Engine Manager.
StreamLock Network Security
Wowza StreamLock AddOn was created as an easier way to securely stream video using RTMPS. Wowza StreamLock AddOn provides near-instant provisioning of FREE 256-bit SSL certificates, greatly simplifying streaming using the RTMPS protocol. StreamLock-provisioned certificates provide the best security when used with RTMP, but are also used for secure HTTP streaming (HTTPS).
Geo IP Locking
The GeoIP AddOn provides GeoIP lookups to verify if users are allowed to access a stream. With the GeoIP AddOn enabled, you can allow or deny access based on a user’s IP address.
Stream Name Alias
The Stream Name Alias AddOn provides a way for users to remap stream names or to allow access to only specific stream names. It also provides a simple mechanism to map complex remote URLs to simple stream names by using wildcards and variables.
Flash RTMP Load Test Tool
The Flash RTMP Load Test Tool can be used to generate RTMP load on a single server that's running Wowza Streaming Engine™ software to test configuration and performance. This tool is designed to create a linear load on a single media server for basic load testing purposes and does not simulate real world streaming. This tool does not support HTTP streams.
Wowza Module Collection
The Wowza Module Collection is a collection of ready-to-use modules and utilities that provide specific functionality for a Wowza-based application.
The modules in the collection are already compiled, so Java experience isn’t required. However, the source code is also provided for all of the modules to allow easy modification for specific use cases.
