Sream with Wowza Streaming Engine

Wowza Streaming Engine 4 Streaming Tutorial

1Download and install Flash Media Live Encoder

You can download Flash Media Live encoder from here: Adobe Media Encoder. You will need to create an Adobe ID, if you don't already have one. This is a free registration process. After you download the encoder, you need to install it onto your computer.

2Setup the server connection info

Open your Flash Live Media Encoder. On the right side you will see this:

Under the FMS URL field you will need to use your stream address, that you have in your setup email that we sent when your account was setup. Also you can see the details in your account panel. FMS URL should be something like: rtmp://example.primcast.com:port/live (replace example.primcast.com with your stream address, and port with your port number)

Also if you bought a dedicated or a virtual server that has Wowza installed on it, you will need to use the server IP instead of address.

After you put the details, click on connect. It will ask you the username and password (also you have those in your setup email).
