JWPlayer 6.x plugin for WordPress….RTMP and HLS stream short code definition.

Not sure why this is such a mystery, but it took the better part of the day to troubleshoot. The main issue with forum posts is that people have the right idea/intention, but the forum software mistreats the actual command line/short code. Spacing really really (did I say really) matters.

The code to get both RTMP and HLS working depends on defining both of those sources. In my case the source is my Wowza Server and I have two URI's: 1) For HLS I use http://wowza.server.ip.address:1935/live/many/playlist.m3u8 2) For RTMP I use rtmp://wowza.server.ip.address:1935/live/many Obviously as you can see my Wowza application is "live"…

Apple, Linux, proxmox, Ubuntu, Unix, Virtual Hosts
A little while ago our web developer asked me to look into proxmox containers and how we could take advantage of it to setup a development environment for him. The idea was to use the power of linux containers and enable him to develop fully functional/accessible sites in a private container. Here are the steps we will cover in this article: Install proxmox on a machine with a single public IP address Secure the machine with ufw to only allow connections from a specific IP address space Setup a admin user other than root for proxmox admin interface Setup proxmox to use the single IP address and the vmbridge for masquerading Setup two Linux Ubuntu 12.04 containers with private addresses and enable the to access the internet via the bridge…
