Testing other protocols

How do I test:

  • RTMP — Adobe no longer supports Flash Player, making RTMP an uncommon format for video playback. Wowza can still ingest an RTMP source and repackage it for delivery with a more playback-friendly protocol. Learn more.
  • RTSP — Use our RTSP test URL to validate your RTSP connections.
