Import UDG MpegTs Fails in Evostream – Works in Wowza
Deciding between evostream and wowza – want to use evostream because it supports webrtc directly and can run on different form factors however it has been a struggle to get it to work. Exposed UDP mpegts video stream through ffmpeg. In a matter of minutes we had the stream imported into wowza and were stemig rtsp to VLC. We successfully imported the udp stream into EVOStream but it fails to play in the browser with a 201 error. VLC does not connect. Both Wowza and EvoStream running in AWS. No errors were found in evostream logs. The metadata integration feature does not seem to match the marketing literature. The Evostream MAC deployment does not work – tried on multiple machines. No other processes were running on any ports. We can live with this issue. EvoStream website down with database error yesterday. Not a good start but if you have any ideas we will try them. We would like to perform a performance benchmark between Wowza and EvoStream – native language could give EvoStream an edge here – but we do any much time.
There could be a number of reasons why there is no playback. First, can you verify that the source stream codecs are H264 and AAC? These are the two codecs EvoStream supports. Second, can you tell me how did you manage to make EvoStream ingest mpegts? If you defined an acceptor for Inbound UDP TS, define a localStreamName. for example:
— Inbound UDP TSUse this localstreamname as a reference for playback (e.g. rtsp://your-ems-ip:5544/test). You can also use a pullstream command to open a port for listening to MPEG-TS streams.
pullstream uri=dmpegtsudp://0.0.0.0:9999 localstreamname=test
