Wowza Installation

MEDIAL uses Wowza Media Server for live streaming and on-demand content delivery. In a basic setup, you install a Wowza server on the same machine as the MEDIAL server, ensuring that each component uses different IP addresses. In an advanced deployment you install Wowza on a separate machine.
