IDENT request failed with error: Security error accessing url
I'm in need of help. I'm having a problem which I believe to be centered around flash. I have 17 Wowza Servers on AWS EC2 and they are running fine.. . All are wowza ready instances. I've recently moved 8 servers into a data center building them up as Wowza Transcoder/Origin Servers, Loadbalancer and Edge Servers... They are running on Linux CentosOS 6.2 with the firewall disabled and SELinux disabled. Java is installed and must be working...
I've got the first transcoder/origin up and running and pulling a stream. I have the stream playing on my IOS device no problem. When trying to play the stream using the Akamai Support player (
http://support.akamai.com/flash/index.html), I keep getting the following Error: "IDENT request failed with error: Security error accessing url"
Research seems to show that it is some sort of crossdomain issue. In /usr/local/WowzaMediaServer/conf directory is the crossdomain.xml file that is installed with Wowza...
If I have a transcoder/origin server on AWS EC2 pull the stream and use the akamai test player to watch the stream, it works just fine. This new transcoder pulls the stream just fine and I can watch it on an IOS device... but I keep getting this error when trying to watch it using the akamai player. ?? I'm baffled. Seems like something simple...
I started up the server in standalone mode so that I could watch things. Following is the console output.. Maybe this will help.
By default on an AWS EC2 wowza instance, the SocketConfiguration in the VHost.xml file includes ports 1935,80,443 and 554. When building up and installing Wowza yourself, only port 1935 is listed here.. I added the additional ports and all is good with the Akamai player.
