Hosting Marketers has started offering on all its hosting plans including hybrid servers wowza hosting. Wowza has the advantage of red5 that it can stream to Apple devices, iphones and iPads.
In Wowza Media Server 3, MediaStreams represent an incoming or outgoing stream of video, audio or metadata. Wowza Server provides a mechanism for defining custom server-side MediaStream implementations or stream types. These stream types are configured using the Streams/StreamType property in the Application.xml file. The following table lists the more commonly used stream types and their intended use (for a complete list, consult the User’s Guide):
default: Video on demand streaming of static Flash media, H.264/AAC and MP3 content
record: Video recording
live: Publish and play live video content (best for one-to-many streaming of live events)
live-lowlatency: Publish and play live video content (best for one-to-one or one-to-few video/audio chat applications)
live-record: Same as live plus content will be recorded
shoutcast: Audio re-streaming of a SHOUTcast/Icecast MP3 or AAC+ audio stream
shoutcast-record: Same as shoutcast plus content will be recorded
liverepeater-origin: Origin stream type used by live stream repeater to deliver a single streaming using origin/edge configuration
liverepeater-edge: Edge stream type used by live stream repeater to deliver a single stream using origin/edge configuration
rtp-live: Re-streaming of an RTSP/RTP, native RTP or MPEG-TS stream
rtp-live-record: Same as rtp-live plus content will be recorded
Wowza Media Server 3 supports the following media file formats: FLV (Flash Video), MP4 (QuickTime container) and MP3 content (see table below for common file extensions). To play video on demand content, the proper prefix must be prepended to the file name to create a stream name. For example to play the MP4 file mycoolvideo.mov use the stream name mp4:mycoolvideo.mov. The following table lists the more common file type prefixes (for a complete list consult the User’s Guide):
flv: FLV (Flash Video – this is the default media type so the qualifier and the file extension can be omitted)
