Videos in VIMP can be provided via a streaming server instead of progressive download optionally. Thus, in the following we describe the installation and configuration of the well-known Wowza streaming server (Wowza Streaming Engine).

Please follow the Wowza installation guide to install Wowza on your server: http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?217-How-to-install-and-configure-Wowza-Streaming-Engine
After installation please log in to the Wowza Streaming Engine Manager (http://[wowza-ip-address]:8088/enginemanager) and click "Applications" in the upper menu bar.

Done - your videos should now be provided via your Wowza streaming server!
