this is prob. a beginner question. I installed just the Wowza-Trial (recent version). I put there several MP4-Files to the content-dir but non of them starts when access the link:
On tcpdump i see the GET-Request to the file and the answer 302 (video/mp4) - until that point it seems to be ok BUT on the output it is just:
GET /plainvideos/xyz.mp4 HTTP/1.1
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
User-Agent: HLS Client/2.0 (compatible; LG NetCast.TV-2012)

It makes no difference if the end-device is (like here) an smart-tv or an browser (google chrome + safari tested). Result is always the same
