New features and functionality in Wowza Streaming Engine

Wowza Streaming Engine is a robust, customizable, and scalable media server software that powers reliable streaming of high-quality video and audio to any device, anywhere. Wowza Streaming Engine contains several enhancements and fixes that help to improve the functionality of the media server software.

Security improvements and updates
In Wowza Streaming Engine, we've fixed security issues related to how passwords are stored in the admin.password file. You now have the option to encode passwords using Bcrypt or digest hash functions. We've also added a command-line tool that enables you to manage users. Security improvements also include updating permissions on several directories with the Linux installer and updating several libraries, such as the Restlet framework library. For more information about these security improvements, see the following the articles:

Low-Latency HLS improvements
Wowza Streaming Engine includes several fixes and performance enhancements for Low-Latency HLS (LL-HLS) that allow streams to be played with any HTML5 player and delivered over a CDN that pulls streams from Wowza Streaming Engine. This includes updates to the default values for the optional LL-HLS and CMAF packetizer properties involved in creating both segments and partial segments and configuring the PART-HOLD-BACK attribute in playlists. For more information about streaming LL-HLS, see the following articles:

Media Cache updates
Wowza Streaming Engine includes new functionality, fixes, and improved logging for Media Cache. For example, you can now download media segments with AWS SDK for Java (2.14.15) for Amazon S3 Media Cache sources and log available storage space in Media Cache stores. For more information about these Media Cache updates, see the following articles:

Logging updates
With Wowza Streaming Engine, we updated the logging framework from Apache Log4j 1.x to Apache Log4j 2 for more reliable logging and additional logging functionality. The Log4j 2 logging system provides ample functionality for log formatting, log rolling, and log retrieval for most applications. For more information about the logging updates, see the following article:

With the upgrade to NVIDIA NVENC SDK 9, Wowza Streaming Engine supports higher quality transcoding workflows when using NVIDIA Turing or newer architecture. The Wowza Streaming Engine Transcoder supports NVIDIA 440.xx drivers, but does not yet support NVIDIA 450.xx drivers.

HTTPS load performance update
Wowza Streaming Engine features improved delivery load performance for HTTPS from Wowza Streaming Engine via a more native implementation in the JVM. See up to double the performance for load delivery with HTTPS by enabling Conscrypt with the insertConscryptCryptoProvider property. For more information about enabling Conscrypt, see the following articles:

Installation and update considerations for Wowza Streaming Engine
Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.5 and later installs a custom packaged version of OpenJDK Java SE JRE 9.0.4 that includes the java.scripting module. This module is required for Wowza Streaming Engine but is not added by the Wowza Streaming Engine updater. If you are updating to Wowza Streaming Engine from Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.0 or earlier, before you update, you need to install a supported version of Java that contains the java.scripting module, such as Java 9-12 or the custom version of OpenJDK Java SE JRE 9.0.4 installed with Wowza Streaming Engine (available from the Downloads tab of My Account). Then instruct Wowza Streaming Engine to use that version of Java according to the instructions in Manually install and troubleshoot Java on Wowza Streaming Engine.

When using the Wowza Streaming Engine installer to install a new instance of Wowza Streaming Engine on Windows, you may need to install additional dependencies in order to ingest SRT MediaCaster streams or use the generic SRT stream targets destination to publish an SRT stream. To address this, install the latest version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio appropriate to your operating system.
