Configure Wowza Media Server


Configure Wowza Media Server 2 for 123FlashChat
This quick tutorial explains how to launch the whiteboard and video chat functions in 123FlashChat with Wowza media server 2.

Install and Configure Wowza Media Server 2
There is no Wowza Media Server 2 yet in the current 123flashchat installation package, so please download it here:
http://www.wowzamedia.com/store.html

1. Create an Application

To use Wowza Media Server 2, you may begin with creating an application. Add an application simply by creating a sub folder in the [install-dir]/applications folder.
For example, to create a new application named 123flashchat, just create a folder:
[install-dir]/applications/123flashchat

2. Default Config File
The application is now ready for the simple video on demand streaming. It will use the default config file in the [install-dir]/conf folder:
[install-dir]/conf/Application.xml (The default config file)

3. Unique Config File
To give an application its own Application.xml instead of the default one, just create a sub folder with the same name of the application in the [install-dir]/conf folder and copy the default config file into the new folder.
[install-dir]/conf/123flashchat/Application.xml (Config file for 123flashchat)

In which [install-dir] indicates the folder in which Wowza Media Server was installed, however, the installation folder differs based on platform:

  • Windows: C:\Program Files\Wowza Media Systems\Wowza Media Server [version]
  • Mac OSX: /Library/WowzaMediaServer
  • Linux/Unix: /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer

You can refer to http://www.wowzamedia.com/forums/content.php?3-quick-start-guide and http://www.wowzamedia.com/resources/WowzaMediaServer_UsersGuide.pdf for more details.

4. Launch the Whiteboard Module
(Skip 4 if the whiteboard function is not needed.)
Download the file FCWhiteBoardModule.jar, add it into the folder [install-dir]/lib/.
Please download it here:
/whiteboard/FCWhiteBoardModule.zip

5. Change Config to Support 123FlashChat
To enable video chat function, please open file [install-dir]/conf/123flashchat/Application.xml,
Find node <StreamType>
Edit to
<StreamType>live</StreamType>

To enable whiteboard, find Modules node, and add the following module sub node
<Module>
<Name>whiteboard</Name>
<Description>Whiteboard</Description>
<Class>com.topcmm.flashchat.server.plugin.wowza.WhiteBoardModule</Class>
</Module>

Eg, the final format is as follows.
<Modules>
<Module>
......
</Module>
<Module>
<Name>whiteboard</Name>
<Description>Whiteboard</Description>
<Class>com.topcmm.flashchat.server.plugin.wowza.WhiteBoardModule</Class>
</Module>

</Modules>
