I play VOD from a wowza server in rtsp to Amino settopboxes and it works fine. I am using Amino-140 boxes ( Opera/9.80 (Linux sh4 ; U ; Amino ; en) Presto/2.5.21 Version/10.30 ) and Wowza Developper 2.2.4 Build 27452, for testing, before deploying several boxes on the client sites.
I have the same probem as above. When I call any of the “GetPos” JMACX function, Wowza stops and says “unknown method”.
I have called Amino support and they say that the problem must be submitted to wowza.
Wheen I press the “Fast Forward” button on the remote-control, Wowza does not forward but it says “unpause”.
This is the reason why I wanted to use the “GetPos” command. I wanted to bypass the “Fast Forward” command for faking it with an internal timer. But for this, I needed the “GetPos” to work.
So, to solve my issue, it would be nice to understand why none of these functions is working. If we understand why, we wil be able to tell if it is Amino or Wowza that should work on this issue.
Note that when you specify the VOD rtsp url to the Amino player (AVMEdia.Play), you have to specify the type of media server. But wowza is not in the list. The media server that you can specify in the parameter string are : BitBand, Concurrent, EONA, InfoValue, Kasenna, MediaBase, nCube, Oracle, SeaChange.
When I play VOD, I specify “Mediabase”. I tried the other values, some works for playing VOD and some don’t, but none of them resolves the issue above.
So, is it Amino that should implement wowza commands in their software, or is it Wowza that should ?
