JavaFX media player get stucked on HLS streaming from Wowza

Hi all.

we’ve been a customer for Wowza streaming engine and successfully use it to stream VOD content to set top boxes, Android and IOS clients, using HLS protocol. However, now we try to develop a PC desktop app using Java and JavaFX framework. The JavaFX streaming player, which we developed, but also the one provided in Oracle’s Ensemble sample gets stuck after playing some time, always after 50 - 60 seconds and it’s not possible to restart it. Has anybody successfully used JavaFX streaming player against Wowza streaming engine ? Could you please help us to troubleshoot and debug this issue?

We use Windows 10, Java JDK 1.8.0_66 and Java FX 2.2.79.

I greatly appreciate your help
