Timed metadata for MPEG-DASH live streams
With Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.10, we've added support for converting AMF timed metadata to Event Message (emsg) timed metadata for MPEG-DASH live streams. The AMF timed metadata can either be ingested by Wowza Streaming Engine from an encoder or injected by Wowza Streaming Engine. Then, the AMF metadata can be converted to emsg metadata for interactive live streaming over MPEG-DASH using the Wowza Streaming Engine Java API. For more information about converting timed metadata for MPEG-DASH, see the following the articles:
Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.10 includes several fixes for HLS streaming, including changing the default behavior for HLS streams to return Gzip encoded content when clients accept it. This speeds up reloading of the media playlist and switching between stream renditions.
