Wowza integration

Hi guys,
I have installed kaltura following this guide.
Currently I’m using wowza as stream server. I followed this guide to setup kaltura-wowza integration. From this guide, I skip “Setting keystore.jks”, “Edit @WOWZA_DIR@/conf/VHost.xml”, “Add Multicast (for on-prem installations)” and all steps that come after.

All configurations seem good but when I try to publish a strem using Adobe Flash Media Live Encoder (it is configurated with broadcasting URL taken from “Live Stream” tab in stream details on kaltura), I get this errors in log.

This happens exactly when i click “connect” button on Flash Media Encoder.
What’s wrong?

Problem seems to be here:

‘Hash [52a7cbc45c9b13b1f7252502dcc095183c9acad9] doesn’t match the sha1 on the salt on partner [-5].’ in /opt/kaltura/app/infra

How did you extract the -5 partner admin secret?
It should be by:
mysql> select admin_secret from kaltura.partner where id=-5;

Uh uh. That’s true. This problem was resolved!
Mistakenly I used the secret of a user, I had not realized that I had to use that of partner with id -5.
Thanks a lot, Jess! :smile:


P.S Now I have another issue, when I play the stream, a popup tells me “Sorry, clip not found”.
Tomorrow I will check why.

Hi @jacopo_g,

Any progress on this? use your browser’s dev tools and run kaltlog from the shell of the server to figure out what the issue is.

Hi @jess,
apparently seemed to be a wowza problem.
When I clicked on the start button of kaltura player and the “Sorry, clip not found” popup appeared, on Wowza was logged that.

I created manually that file and now the stream works fine.


Hey @jacopo_g,

Does your Wowza Dash board on enginemanager when you first login still display connection stats after you made the changes to the files in Wowza? My attempt to do this broke that functionally in Wowza.
