I would like to use FFMPEG instead of Adobe.
If you would like to use FFMPEG to publish a stream, you can use the following command:
ffmpeg -re -i dummy.mp4 -f flv rtmp://username:password@fms_URL:80/P"CDN_Reference"/mystream
ffmpeg -re -i dummy.mp4 -f flv rtmp://P404130149:mtXsvYDwQQ@404130149.publishstream.worldcdn.net:80/P404130149/streamname
In case of external publishing point, Use-of-external-publishing-point the customer should have the rtmp url "rtmp//xxxxxx.xxxx.com/live/streamname1", first (url must start with "rtmp//xxxxxx.xxxx.com/live" (for example) ). And, "streamname1" is the name of the stream defined in the ffmpeg command during the streaming in the command line on the Centos system to the external publishing point. This url (from the external publishing point) should be playable. And, only after that, you can try to re-stream it using our CDN network.
After that, you should create Live stream resource on UI and you just have to insert "rtmp//xxxxxx.xxxx.com/live/" for the "Main External Publishing Location".
So, in the end, your CDN url will be looking like this example: http://video.yourdomina.net/414746811/_definst_/streamname1.m3u8 ("streamname1" is the streamname, mentioned in the ffmpeg command)
Also, please, note
Known Limitation (1) wowza only supports re-streaming h264+aac to HLS/HDS. (2) For HLS/HDS restream, only wowza rtmp origin is supported
