Using Wowza Streaming Engine and our wowza control panel to Live Camera Restream

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

This format RTP or RTSP is useless for players, 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 receive an email with the wowza control panel URL, username (the email) and the password. Login to the wowza control panel and click on to enter the service overview.
