Some of my short VOD clips fail to play in iOS (iOS6, iPad, Simulator). The first frame loads, but the video never plays - the loading message and spinner stay forever. Other short videos play successfully. I can view the videos with no problem in Safari on Mac, in VLC on Windows, etc. It is only on iOS (Safari and native app) that the problem manifests itself.
And/or, depending on the actual length and encoding, if you can encode the file to have a key frame frequency of 1 second, then set cupertinoChunkDurationTarget to "1000" (1 second). Then if the video is at least 3 seconds long you might leave cupertinoPlaylistChunkCount at default setting or "3". In any case, those are the settings I would work with in this case, along with key frame frequency, which gop (or key frame interval) / fps
Right, sorry, not for vod. All I can suggest is encoding the file with very short key frame interval, 1 second if possible, so Wowza breaks smaller chunks. Not sure if that will help. For reference, this is our
video encoding guide
