If you make changes to and you're using the Wowza Streaming Engine™ software, any supported settings will be displayed in the manager the next time it's started.
Most RTSP control messages are sent by the client to the server, but some RTSP commands are initiated by the server and sent to the client.Adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming lets players switch between bitrate renditions of a stream to accommodate changing network conditions, CPU constraints, and display capabilities.Players control switching based on client-side factors, and Wowza Streaming Engine or Wowza Streaming Cloud perform the server-side switching transparently to viewers.The terms H.264, AVC, and MPEG-4 Part 10 are equivalent and interchangeable.H.264 is the current standard for video streaming and is the most commonly used format for encoding live streams and multimedia files for on-demand streaming that are served by Wowza media servers.For example, you can control the video A codec (compression- decompression) is a hardware or software algorithm that encodes audio/video data into a file format that can be transmitted and received, stored, encrypted, or played efficiently. Because the data is compressed, files are smaller and use less bandwidth.
However, some data is lost in lossy compression, so you want to be sure it's not noticeable to viewers.
RTSP uses RTP and RTCP for the delivery of the media.
RTSP maintains session state by using control sequences.
Lossless codecs, in contrast, are mostly used to store or archive video and audio, because they retain all of the information in the original stream.
This allows future editing of the data at a higher resolution.
This tutorial provides the basic steps that show how to use Wowza Streaming Engine™ live streaming software to publish a live stream from an IP camera for playback on all supported player technologies.
