Admin panel for Wowza 2 and Wowza 3

As we recently announced, Wowza released version 4.0 of its award-winning server. Wowza Media Systems even changed product name to Wowza Streaming Engine to indicate the evolutionary progress. And even though it now has a management interface, WMSPanel still has something to offer for Wowza users - our rich feature set covers a variety of use cases.

However, there are still a lot of companies which use previous versions of Wowza. Migrating the existing streaming system to new software version may take some time and people may want to skip the upgrade if existing installation works perfectly already. A lot of customers use Wowza Media Server 3.0 or 3.6 in their infrastructure and we even have customers who still use Wowza Media Server 2.2.4 stable release just and it works fine for them.

It's extra important for old versions because they don't have built-in server management system while WMSPanel provides both server management and streams management solution. The latter feature set is implemented differently in Wowza 2 and Wowza 3 and we support both implementations, this this is a unique solution.

The same applies to paywall feature set for Wowza which includes hotlinking protection, geo-location lock and pay-per-view framework. It will work regardless of Wowza version.

So we put efforts to keep our Wowza agent working with all popular Wowza versions. It takes additional resources but we want our customers to have the best user experience.

At the moment the following major versions are supported:

  • Wowza Media Server 2.2.4
  • Wowza Media Server 3.0.x
  • Wowza Media Server 3.5.x
  • Wowza Media Server 3.6.x
  • Wowza Streaming Engine 4.x

Of course you may have a combination of different versions within the same WMSPanel account, they will all fit perfectly.

Now try our control panel in action during 2 weeks free trial.
