Ability to play Smil (m3u8) via Flash


We are building an application using Flash Player/AIR, and the Wowza server only sends a m3u8 playlist for a smil url. Is there any possibility to play the stream using Flash, since this is not natively supported?

Flash RTMP clients only support RTMP Dynamic Streaming. JW Player does this and has an integration with Wowza server-side smil, which is transformed to its client-side smil. The 2nd example here demonstrates that:

Flash HTTP clients that use the OSMF framework can play HDS (sanjose) streams. You can use the FlashHTTPPlayer examples that ship with Wowza or Flowplayer or Flash Playback Player
