Thanks for the prompt response. It really is very encouraging
I would agree with your assessment and those were my initial thoughts as well. We’ve had this issue since Wowza 1.7.0 though and with every upgrade the issue initially abates but inevitably returns. The server sits with Streamguys in the US where we have copious amounts of bandwidth available and are currently only using a small percentage of the available bandwidth. We are however relaying from another ISP in South Africa, where we are based.
The similarity between iOS and RTMP is the fact that it disconnects. Colouring it a little more though, the iOS streams very consistently drop at around 1 minute of streaming. The RTMP streams drop intermittently though sometimes 40 seconds, sometimes 40 minutes and other times 36 hours. Identifying and troubleshooting it is a definite pain in the butt.
Maybe we should start with the iOS streams. Considering it is a repeatable issue. I would be happy to make a stream URL available for you to test with an iPhone or iPad if you like?
