Support for Wowza GoCoder

Some time ago Wowza Media Systems released a promising product called GoCoder. It's an application available for both iOS (iPhone and iPad) and for Android, it allows making live streaming from anywhere anytime delivering to any screen via pre-configured Wowza server.

This application requires some configuration on Wowza side. Specifically you need to create a application with certain settings. Traditionally you should have done this via manual config files editing. WMSPanel allow creating and controlling apps via simple web interface. Let's see what you can do with our service.

Enable Server management for Wowza by going to Control / Server management menu. You'll need to load server configuration first, but that's a single time operation.

Click on Create an application and choose GoCoder template from templates list.

Create Wowza GoCoder application from a template.
After the application is created, click on its name to make user and password settings, here's a brief screen shots instruction.

Go to server's management page and click on application name.

Click on Config application button.


Clicking on this button you will go to application settings page. Click on Set password button to see dialog for setting user and password.


Enter user and password with the format shown in the dialog.  Select servers and click on Apply to apply user/password settings to selected servers.

Setting password for Wowza application or instance.
In GoCoder application settings enter your Wowza server IP address and application name (ipad_live for this example).

That's it


You can start publishing your GoCoder streaming. You can also allow your end-users to set up GoCoder application via user permissions management.

You may also consider WMSPanel server tasks remote management via web console for convenient control of server-side commands. Launch any command, like ffmpeg process, with no need to log in via SSH, just an easy-to-use web interface.

Let us know if there are some specific settings you make to Wowza app to make GoCoder work smoothly so we could make them easier to manage.
