Now to test my stream on iOS I am using the iOS VLC app (I don't have PRO JWplayer so I can't stream iOS to the player)
So I use the playlist.m3u8 link
When I plug that link into the VLC app, it takes about 5 minutes for it to load, and when it does finally show picture and sound, the video, for lack of a better word, quits and i'm back at the Network Stream screen in the app.
When I code the m3u8 link into the JWplayer it says no stream could be found.
How do I get this to work on iOS??? This was the whole reason we purchased Wowza to begin with!
Ok, so fooling around with different links, the only one that works in iOS VLC is the Adobe RTMP stream. DASH, HLS, HDS, MSSmooth, M3U8, and RTSP all fail on iOS.
I guess my main question is; is there any alternative to JW player that doesn't cost $300 a year for 1 HLS stream?
If you want FREE, you can link to your HLS stream for iOS systems with <a href="[hls stream]">Click here for iPad/iPhone Live Stream</a>. Then use RTMP through JW Player for the desktop player. Wowza transmuxes the streams into several formats and you can have more than one on the page.
I don't believe there is an "easy" solution to getting a free player that do both desktop flash and HLS.
