Capturing VOD from a file

WCS allows you to work with previously recorded broadcasts as with a regular video stream

WCS offers possibility to capture a media stream from an MP4 file located on the local disk of the server (Video on Demand, VOD). The received stream can be played, republished, managed just like any stream on the WCS server. Primarily, this option is intended to play previously recorded broadcasts in a browser or a mobile application on the client side.
