How to Live Camera Restream with Our RTMP Server

The option Live Camera Restream, on our Wowza control panel, is used for IP cameras. The output of an IP camera is normally RTSP or RTP ( example: rtsp://[camera-ip-address]:554/axis-media/media.amp ).

By using our Wowza server and the Live Camera Re-Stream, we convert this signal for playback on all supported player technologies. Some cameras are not supported. Please open a ticket and email us the RTSP or RTP for us to check if it works on our Wowza servers.

After you order, you will receive an email with the Wowza control panel URL, the username (email), and the password. Login to the Wowza control panel and click on it to enter the service overview.
