I am testing a Demo copy of wowza to see if it works, and while it is promising I am running into quite a few problems.
For one, while trying to view a live stream on a mobile device, it plays for a few seconds and then stops to buffer. When I look at the network usage graph on the server I see ups and downs corresponding to the stoppages in play. How can I get this thing to play a steady stream?
This machine has a gigabit ethernet card, and only one connection is being made from the iPhone on local WLAN to the server on the same LAN.
How can I embed a player on a webpage that can play the right stream based upon the user's system. For example I want a
www.mydomain.com/live.hmtl page and on that page an embedded player that will play the video in the page for everyone from MaxOSX, Windows XP, Android, Blackberry, iOS, etc.
I saw the SMIL files, but I can't get those to work, and there's no helpful guide that I have found that shows me steps for coding the front end of the player in HTML.
