Wowza custom streaming/recording (RTMP) setup

You can stream a Pexip conference to Wowza and then share links to that conference with other people. See Live event streaming and recording for details about other streaming options.

To stream a conference to Wowza Streaming Cloud:

  1. Log in to your Wowza Streaming Cloud account at
  2. Go to Live Streams > Add Live Stream. You are taken through a series of pages asking you to provide information about the stream you are creating. Below are the settings you must select; for all other settings, choose the option most suited to your requirements:

    Video Source and Transcoder settings Option to select
    What camera or encoder will you use to connect to Wowza Streaming Cloud? Other RTMP
    Do you want to push or pull your stream? Push Stream
    Aspect Ratio 1280 x 720
    Source Security Disable authentication

  3. Select Finish. You are taken to the Overview page for your new stream. In the Source Connection Information section you can see details of the stream's Primary Server and Stream Name:

  4. When you are ready to begin streaming, select Start Live Stream. You must begin the stream before you initiate the call from the VMR (see the following step).

    When streaming has begun, you will see No Video Detected in the Video Thumbnail:

  5. Set up the live stream from your VMR as described in Using a custom RTMP stream/recording integration in the Pexip app.

    When either scheduling or creating an ad hoc stream you need to input the ingest/server URL provided by Wowza.

  6. Return to Wowza. After a short delay you should see a preview of the video being streamed:

  7. The stream is now available for viewing. If you chose the option to have Wowza Streaming Cloud host a webpage that plays back your video, anyone with the Hosted Page URL can view the live stream.
  8. When you have finished, select Stop Live Stream.
  9. If you have chosen to record the stream, after a short delay you can view and download this and any previous recordings of the stream by selecting the stream from the left-hand panel and then selecting Recordings.
