Wowza streaming server AddOns are tools that will help you deliver, transform, enhance, protect, and manage your media streaming for live or on-demand content and even on broadcast recording. By using Wowza Server Hosting provided by Primcast, you will be able to have access and enjoy some new experiences using Transcoder , nDVR or DRM addons.

Wowza Streaming Server and Transcoder AddOn

Wowza Transcoder AddOn provides the power to receive a live stream, decrypt the video and audio, then re-encode the stream to fit the specified playback devices. Wowza Transcoder provides real-time audio and video transcoding and transrating feature. It will decrypt audio and video in multiple formats and re-encode them to properly key-frame aligned H.264 streams for adaptive bitrate delivery. Adaptive bitrate broadcasting using Wowza Streaming provided by Primcast would help a lot the wowza streaming mobile devices feature that you can read more about here.

Transcoded content can be broadcasted as a single bit-rate stream to any of the Wowza streaming server protocols that are supported or even to RTMP / HTTP Dynamic Streaming, Apple HLS and Silverlight Smooth Streaming using adaptive bitrate. Using the same server configuration the transcoder addon provides converting your broadcasted content incoming from IP cameras, Software and Hardware encoders, and any other live sources to H264 encoding in order to have the stream broadcasted everywhere.

Wowza Streaming Server and nDVR AddOn

The nDVR addon that can be enabled over your Primcast Wowza streaming server will give your viewers a whole new experience while watching your content. nDVR represents a  consumer service where real-time broadcast is captured in the network on the Wowza Media Server allowing the end user to access the recorded program at will, rather than being tied to the broadcast schedule.

The addon provides trick play features such as pause , play and rewind, all of them while the stream is being live broadcasted. This functionality is placed completely over the server and viewers will not have to have anything extra installed on their viewing devices.

Wowza Streaming Server and DRM AddOn

DRM addon represents an integration solution that offers one of the best solutions to Wowza streaming customers that need studio-approved security for premium content broadcasting. The feature provides on the fly encryption for a large variety of playback devices supplying integration with multiple third party DRM key management systems.

Wowza streaming live or on-demand content is encrypted on-the-fly with Microsoft® PlayReady® or Verimatrix® VCAS™ for delivery via Apple® HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and Microsoft Smooth Streaming to viewers on a wide range of endpoints, including PCs and Macs, set-top boxes (STBs), smart TVs, game consoles, smartphones, and tablets.

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.
