<video controls src="http://[wowza-address]:1935/vod/sample.mp4/playlist.m3u8">
What you show is what you would expect in a browser from a playlist.m3u8 url. You can also look at the chunklist.m3u8
To play a HLS stream you need to put the playlist.m3u8 url in a browser on the device. You can also use VLC to test.
For iOS playback, it is best to use the playlist.m3u8 url in a HTML5 video tag:
Hmmm, but if I open apple's test m3u8 (
http://devimages.apple.com/iphone/samples/bipbop/bipbopall.m3u8) I do see more information. More, if I hit a "wrong" URL on my wowza server (one that points to content that does not exists), I get the same file.
In any case, I got the issue resolved. There were two issues:
1) The m3u8 was not publishing the codec information. Adding the
cupertinoCalculateResolution properties resolved this. Thanks for that pointer!
2) Since this is a live stream (re-stream from RTSP source), the stream itself needs to be running first, before there will be anything in the m3u8 file. I had to manually start the stream first, then the m3u8 would have the correct information, and it will work in iOS.
