I started to explore multicast network technology and talk about it from previous post. Mostly working with WowzaStreamingEngine, I wish to show principles and milestones configuration there.
We’re familiar with ABR stream playback, where we pick between multiple video bitrates. But what about streams with different audio tracks and different video pictures? Sometimes channel can be switched to different languages or different comments.
I’d like to pay attention at the communication between Wowza Streaming Engine and Nginx as origin – edge. Here will be shown the synopsys of this structure and detailed software configuration.
I worked last 5 months of this year at the media streaming field. I still was a Linux servers maintainer who tries to explore this awesome OS world as much as possible. But the main goal was special and quite different. That goal – servers customization for live stream videos transcoding and broadcast.
Sometimes NVIDIA users faced with driver problem trying to successfully setup Linux on workstations. Linux kernel includes open source driver, but sometimes it isn’t fully eligible for videocards. The old ones in particular. Some days ago I felt the same thing trying to step up to Fedora 24 & 4.6 kernel. I guess it could happen with any rpm-based distro like CentOS, ROSA etc..
Wowza maintainers make the installation process pretty easy by itself. But here are some milestones too.
