I just finished publishing a new Wowza module: wms-plugin-auth-mysql – MySQL authentication for Wowza. This module is really tweakable and customizable. It basically allows you to authenticate all or a subset of clients connecting to your Wowza Media Server instance. The documentation goes into great detail about how to customize it and get things rolling.
For future reference, never ever define a column named “read” in a Hibernate application using MySQL.
(results in hibernate hbm2ddl error, no table generation, silent fail)
