RTMP to HLS with a live streaming mobile app

Mobile App for Live Streaming

Using GoCoder from Wowza, you can stream live from a mobile (Android or iPhone). The quality is very good. You select the bitrate that you are allowed to use and it then connects to our RTMP servers. You will need the FMS URL, that you are given, on our Wowza control panel.

Bitrate

For On Demand video streaming or TV station services, you will upload video files, which must be in MP4 format and with a slightly lower bitrate allowed on your package. When you order, you select the package you want, and one of the criteria is the bitrate.

If your bitrate is higher than allowed, then you won’t be able to save the video file to the playlist. There is free software to do that, or you can use an online converter. You can test it at:

Video chats

For some video chats, it is obligatory to use RTMP because it is the best low-latency possible. Videowhisper.com is one of the best video chats available; they use Wowza RTMP for stability and quality chats. Please contact us if you would you like a customized solution; prices start at $25 a month for RTMP video chat apps.

Restart the service on the Control Panel

Sometimes, the service will freeze, you want to create a new playlist for a TV station, and you need to restart the service. On the control panel on the left there is a small image for restarting the server. Click on it and wait until the process finishes. It will take about 1 minute (see image).
