RTMP To RTSP re-stream using wowza and xuggler

With this example we shall show you how to transcode RTMP To RTSP re-stream using wowza and xuggler.

These are the basic steps you need to take:

  • Crete an inputStream String "rtmp://wowzahost/live/streamLive3H.263".
  • Create an outputStream String "rtmp://wowzahost/live/streamLive3H.264".
  • Create a string array with “–acodec”, “libfaac”, “–vcodec”, “libx264”, “–vpreset”, “/usr/local/xuggler/share/ffmpeg/libx264-ultrafast.ffpreset”,inputStream, outputStream
  • Create a new Converter.
  • Create new Options calling converter.defineOptions().
  • Create a new CommandLine.
  • Parse the option using converter.parseOptions(options, parameters).
  • And finally run the commands using converter.run(cmdLine).

Here is the code:

package com.javacodegeeks.xuggler;

import org.apache.commons.cli.CommandLine;
import org.apache.commons.cli.Options;
import org.apache.commons.cli.ParseException;

import com.xuggle.xuggler.Converter;

public class Transcoder {

     * @param args
    public static void main(String[] args) {

  String inputStream = "rtmp://wowzahost/live/streamLive3H.263";

  String outputStream = "rtmp://wowzahost/live/streamLive3H.264";

  String[] parameters = new String[] { "--acodec", "libfaac", "--vcodec",

    "libx264", "--vpreset",


    inputStream, outputStream };

  Converter converter = new Converter();

  Options options = converter.defineOptions();

  CommandLine cmdLine;

  try {

cmdLine = converter.parseOptions(options, parameters);



  } catch (ParseException e) {

// TODO Auto-generated catch block
