Java API to resolve SMIL file (AMLST) - Not working for HDS and HLS

Hi everyone,

I developed a module to resolve SMIL file request, just as described in this article (

It works pretty fine when a SMIL file is requested. By requesting the URL http://[wowza-server-url]/[application]/[app-instance]/amlst:[prefix]/medialist.smil it presents the following file:

		<video src="video1" system-bitrate="1064000" width="1280" height="720">
			<param name="audioBitrate" value="64000" valuetype="data"/>
			<param name="videoBitrate" value="1000000" valuetype="data"/>
		<video src="video1_500" system-bitrate="564000" width="1280" height="720">
			<param name="audioBitrate" value="64000" valuetype="data"/>
			<param name="videoBitrate" value="500000" valuetype="data"/>

But by requesting the URL http://[wowza-server-url]/[application]/[app-instance]/amlst:[prefix]/manifest.f4m it presents the following file, with only one stream path:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns="">
	<bootstrapInfo id="bootstrap1064000" profile="named" url="playlist_b1064000_w1016359968.abst"/>
	<media bootstrapInfoId="bootstrap1064000" width="1280" height="720" bitrate="1039" url="media_b1064000_w1016359968.abst/">

The same thing happens when an HLS file is requested (playlist.m3u8)

Has anyone tried to use this module?

Do I need to apply any extra configuration to make it working for other kind of files besides SMIL files?

Any help would be really appreciated.

Hi ciroanunciacao,

I have the exact same problem!!! It works fine for RTMP, but HLS is completely failing …

I’m using Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.2

I can see the call passing to my IMediaStreamNameAliasProvider2 instead of going to IMediaListProvider

The strange thing is that it is working on android/jwplayer HLS but not on iPad/jwplayer so it could be a jwplayer issue?



Has this been taken care of? I’m still having an issue in 4.2 where the amlst request is returning a 404 for an F4M manifest request.


This will now be handled in the created ticket (126544).


Any Support on this one Guys :confused:
