i have this issue which i hope i can help with from someone on this forum.
I setup my wowza app to stream for iPhone/Android/Blackberry) and i have http link for iPhone to play the stream and rtsp link for Android and Blackberry to play the stream.
iPhone and Blackberry work like a charm, but there is a very strange story with Android and RTSP.
It does work no problem on AT&T devices - both 2.1 and 2.2 (Froyo), but it does not work on Verizon device with 2.2 (have not tried with T-Mobile or Sprint yet).
I read somewhere on this forum about Verizon not allowing RTSP over 3G and stuff like that, so I kind of expected something of the like.
However, in addition to my Wowza servers which i run and manage myself, I also got an account with provider called Influxis that recently launched mobile delivery option for its customers. They are FMS based and after i have setup my test stream on their platform, i got HTTP link for my live stream which supposedly should be good for all mobile devices.
Guess what - this HTTP link for the live stream indeed works everywhere - even Android device from Verizon which could not play RTSP stream from wowza.
My question - is it possible somehow to “mask” RTSP stream as HTTP?
What is so special FMS can do that Wowza can not in order to make live stream delivery to work on all Androids no matter which carrier they use?
