How can i create application with automatic (if it’s exist ) multi bitrate selection ?
i’m working with jw player and i created a playlist file with multiple bitrates but i always get that i have only 1 level of bitrate.
my playlist file looks like :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <rss version="2.0" xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" xmlns:jwplayer="http://developer.longtailvideo.com/trac/wiki/FlashFormats"> <channel> <item> <title>Bitrate Switching - Planet Earth</title> <description>Bitrate switching for RTMP streaming is done on startup and with every seek and fullscreen switch.</description> <media:group> <media:content bitrate="6000" url="earth_hd.mp4" width="960" /> <media:content bitrate="3000" url="sd_cut.mp4" width="1280" /> </media:group> <media:thumbnail url="planetearth.jpg" /> <jwplayer:streamer>rtmp://my.wowza.server/vod</jwplayer:streamer> <jwplayer:type>rtmp</jwplayer:type> </item> </channel> </rss>
according to some posts(http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/forum/Setup-Problems/20391/Bitrate-switching-always-selecting-same-level#msg136452) on longtailvideo (jwplayer web site) wowza does not support multi bitrate
(see one before the last post - by a guy called hobbs).
so, is there any way to make wowza support multi bitrate ?
