Getting "Session not accepted" with HLS streaming

Seems that our wowza HLS implementation might be having some session errors, I just want to know if these are critical (ie: will cause playback issues for users) or if they are just warnings and the client will fix it on it’s own.

Any help would be great, thanks.

This looks like result of server-side Module with onHTTPSessionCreate handler doing httpSession.rejectSession(). It is a HLS (cupertino) playback stream.

Wowza accepts all session requests by default. You have to use a custom module to reject a session. Do you have something installed? Look in the /conf/vod/Application.xml /Modules list.


Great! Thanks for the update.


Right you are!

I thought it had been removed. Thanks.
