RTMP Video Stream to Private Roku Channel Step by Step Setup

I need assistance in setting up the Roku with Live Video Streaming.
We are currently running Wowza (RTMP) for our video feeds. I am new at this; step by step instructions will be appreciated!
I have downloaded: roku_sdk_v29. I am not sure what files to edit and what codes to put in. Does anyone have templates available?

Thank You!

What hozedhead suggested. RTMP isn't supported, but Wowza can do HLS.

Generally speaking, the RTMP part is how Flash Media Live Encoder connects to your Wowza server for live broadcasts, and the HLS part is how the Roku connects to your Wowza server. You need to set up "cupertino" streaming (which is what wowza calls HLS)

For help with Wowza and FMLE configuration, visit the forum at

On the Roku side, you can pretty easily see how to set this up in the SimpleVideoplayer app, in your Roku SDK.
