PWI Dynamic SMIL Addon for Wowza Streaming Engine

Distribution of VOD content via HTTP streaming method has a lot of advantages against regular download and progressive download methods. To get the maximum benefits of HTTP streaming and increase viewers comfort VOD content should be delivered as multibitrate stream (ABR). Viewer's player or device automatically selects a proper bitrate (rendition) to play accordingly with the current network conditions. HTTP ABR streaming with Wowza requires a special file with metadata - so called SMIL file, to be created for each VOD asset and put on HDD along with each video file. SMIL file creation is a manual process which could be done in Wowza Streaming Engine manager interface or by editing XML files directly. PWI Dynamic SMIL Addon module simplifies this workflow and allows to create SMILs on the fly. The module also is capable for MP4 files with multiply audio tracks.
