Wowza Streaming content on mobile devices

Wowza Streaming – basic information

Everybody knows nowadays that a great solution to bring or have multiple viewers over your stream includes covering a wide area of devices that can play your content broadcast. Well, using Wowza, Primcast has the solution. Wowza Streaming on mobile devices has been available with Primcast since the very first moment and the hosting provided includes content available to iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android, Blackberry and even Symbian. The following article should cover all the settings you will need to configure in Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder in order to display the content to mobile devices, using our Wowza Servers.

Wowza Streaming – encoder setup

First of all you need to make sure that your streaming device supports H264 video format and MP3 or AAC audio format broadcasting. So in the Video section of the encoder you will need to choose the format as H.264 and 15FPS as frame rate. Make sure you also select Baseline 2.2 by clicking on the wrench icon near the H.264 field. The input size and bitrate will be set by you at your choice depending on the quality you will need for your stream. Our recommendation is between 250 kbps and 600 kbps for SD quality and between 600 kbps and 1.5 mbps for HD quality. For the Audio section of your encoder we recommend using MP3 format that works with iOS and Android and AAC that works with iOS, Android, Blackberry and even Symbian (few devices).  The channels feature must be set on Stereo and Sample Rate 44100 Hz. The bitrate remains on your own decision to set although we recommend 96 kbps or 128 kbps for MP3 format and 64 kbps or 96kbps for AAC format.

 

Wowza Streaming – server connection

Since we set the streaming format for mobile devices streaming it only remains that you connect to your Wowza Hosting Server using the details that will be provided on your account after signing in up with Primcast. On the FMS URL field on the right side of the encoder you will need to enter the Wowza Hosting address which will look like: rtmp://wowza.primcast.com:9999/live. By adding ‘/live’ at the end of Wowza Streaming Server address, the encoder will automatically access the Wowza Server live application. The Stream field on the encoder should be set on your decision by giving a name, simpler the better to remember and use in the embedded code or in the direct streaming links. We recommend ‘livestream’ to use on this field as stream name. Hitting Connect button under the Stream field of the encoder will prompt a login to the Wowza  Streaming Server in order to authenticate to your server and start broadcasting. After you entered the username and password for your Wowza Streaming Server you will be able to hit Start button on the bottom of  the encoder.

Media streaming done right

When compared to the other media streaming platforms currently available on the market, Wowza has had quite a rapid growth both in technology but in popularity as well. Unlike platforms such as Windows Media or Flash Media which had a slow start, Wowza has been profitable from day 1 and will continue to improve even further.

The reason Wowza has become so successful today is because it supports delivery to virtually any screen. The people from Wowza believe that this feature is absolutely critical to their business strategy. The platform’s architecture of the underlying infrastructure allows Wowza Media Server to accept plug-in modules with a variety of functions. Features such as adaptive bitrate and time-shifted playback are very simple to implement and very cost effective.

Wowza is designed to scale from a small single license server solution up to a Content Delivery Network level solution by adding licenses across a growing number of commodity hardware platforms.

With the introduction of the latest Wowza version, Wowza Media Server 3, users now have the ability to purchase and add in additional modules. One such very important module that users have been waiting for a long time is the network digital video recorder module. With the great support Wowza offers the development community, more powerful modules are bound to emerge and make Wowza an even better product than it already is.

So even though Wowza Media Server is the newest platform for streaming video content online, it is also the one with the most potential. Wowza has grown very rapidly and in a very short amount of time, even surpassing its competitors in some areas. Wowza can be used to stream to even thousands of simultaneous users. However, even if Wowza does not impose any limits, you may be limited by the hardware of the machine Wowza Media Server is installed on.

Primcast offers very reliable and not to mention affordable Wowza Media Server shared and dedicated plans. For more information about our offer please visit our website
