I'm trying to serve an MP4 file using HTTP so that I can utilize JWPlayer to stream it with HTML5. According to the JWPlayer rep I've been working with, their player can stream MP4 files in Chrome browser with HTML5 only (with Flash disabled). And, although I have Wowza currently configured to serve MP4 files using RTMP, I apparently don't have it configured properly to serve via HTTP. Can someone tell me if this is possible and, if so, where I can find the specific documentation to configure this? Thanks.
The question is, does Chrome support AAC? I think it can do WebM/VP8/Ogg/Vorbis and maybe H.264. Your rep might have been transcoding into a non H.264/AAC format.
Regarding the streams. It can be confusing at first. The HTTPStreamers go in the Application.xml. See step 3 of the VOD tutorial. You need to specify the proper HTTPStreams you want to serve for VOD. For live you need both the HTTPStreamers and LiveStreamPacketizers.
Thanks again, Randall. For various reasons, I have to set this project aside for now. But I appreciate your help - it will come in handy when I get back to this later.
