Wowza Media Systems is demoing Google WebM HTML5 live streaming with the Wowza Media Server.

Wowza Media Systems is demonstrating Google's WebM (HTML5) live streaming with the Wowza Media Server on the Wowza website. WebM is an open, royalty-free media file format designed for the Web.

Wowza Media Server is codec-agnostic, so adding the required VP8 video and Vorbis audio was easily accomplished, the company said. The Wowza team created a WebM (VP8/Vorbis-encoded) file and implemented WebM HTTP streaming. The file is streamed as if it were live using the Wowza server-side publishing API with results that include fast-loading playback and high image quality.

Wowza Media Server is high-performance software that simultaneously streams H.264/AAC/MP3 A/V content to users on any screen, including desktops, mobile devices and those in the living room. It offers broad support of media platforms, including Flash, Silverlight, Apple iOS (iPhone/iPad), Android and Blackberry, as well as IPTVs and game consoles.
