Setting up live stream for Wowza via WMSPanel

Many people who enter the business of media streaming start their way with live streaming. They look for easy way to begin streaming and make something that will be the basis for their future streaming platform. This is where Wowza Media Server helps. It has rich feature set and detailed documentation for beginners.

WMSPanel has Wowza server management feature set which allows simplifying the set up of the application by using wizard-like interface and re-using global application templates.

Let's see how live streaming may be set up using these features.

1. 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.

2. Click on Create an application and choose Live streamer template from templates list.
