Wowza version: Wowza Media Server 2 for Amazon EC2 188.8.131.52 build27285
We have a partner who wishes to view our live stream in a media player on Windows. Our live stream can be viewed in QuickTime on a Mac by clicking on Open URL... and entering: http://koastalcams.com:1935/live/mp4:Pismo+Beach.stream/playlist.m3u8
However, QuickTime on Windows displays the following error after entering the same URL: "Error 47: Invalid URL. ()". If I replace the '+' in the URL with '' or '%20', QuickTime displays the error: "Error -43: a file could not be found (playlist.m3u8)".
Further, QuickTime on a Mac repeatedly shows artifacts and glitches to still shots of prior frames; whereas this doesn't happen when viewing the live stream through the Flash player at http://koastalcams.com/Pismo_Beach
I have two questions:
1. How can I view the above stream in either QuickTime or VLC on Windows?
2. Is there a way to prevent the artifacts and glitches that are happening when streaming the video through the MP4 URL?
