Hi I’ve discovered some strange problems using Dash.JS with wowza. The stream keeps stopping in Chrome, Firefox , Safari.
In the logs it’s stops around here. Its like a frame drop but not. Audio cuts out also.
In Chrome it starts playback then suddenly jumps ahead after a couple of seconds to the live time so the frame skips. All the browsers are doing with with a blocky picture on startup.
I lose audio and most of the time the video will stop completely when I get to these logs

The stopping is intermittent on Chrome and Firefox but happening all the time in Safari. Shaka player doesn’t even work in Safari or Firefox. No playback happens at all.
I had to force Flash media encoder to use a baseline codec as it defaults to main. If I use main it causes a MEDIA_DECODE_ERROR on Safari and Firefox.
Any ideas ? It seems totally broken apart from partially working on Chrome.
Also is it a requirement to set a baseline codec then for the encoders ? VOD Wowza is fine even with main and high codec profiles on Safari and Firefox ??
Let me know before I have to consult dash.js. It’s possible we might need to choose a HDS source as fallback for now ?
