iOS issue "...format is not supported: http://myurl/live/streamname/playlist.m3u8"

Hello, I’m recently having issues viewing my live stream on iOS devices. It might be since I started a new instance with the lastest wowza version. I get the following errorr:

iOS issue “…format is not supported: http://myurl/live/streamname/playlist.m3u8

The stream works fine in flash and used to work before with my previous server.



Try on port 1935:


And make sure the Application.xml /LiveStreamPacketizers includes “cupertinostreamingpacketizer”


I am referring to the configuration file I assume you have here:


Edit that file, find /Streams /LiveStreamPacketizers

Refer to this tutorial:


Thanks Richard. I pasted the “:1935” after my URL and that works. Where do I find the Application.xml /LiveStreamPacketizers? And what does including “cupertinostreamingpacketizer” do?

Thanks for your patience, I’m very new to all of this.
