samsung smart tv live stream


Is it possible make live stream to samsung smart tv ?

I have tried VOD it works fine but I am not able to play live stream I have tried flash and hls.


Hi dubnik,

I have not found any definitive answer on the Wowza forum of this working but I will share with you what I have found:

  1. Samsung Smart TV supports RTMP and RTMPe protocols.

  2. “If you have vod working with the device’s Flash plugin you should be able to do live.”

  3. Here is a tutorial for building an application for playing VOD on the Samsung Smart TV

{I am unable to test this as I don’t have a Samsung Smart TV}

3:a) for : var url = “rtmp://[wowza-ip]/app-name”

3:b) for : var videoname = “stream-name”

And here are a few forum threads and articles:

The difference is probably the audio and/or video codec. Look at the codecs of the working vod stream for reference, then apply those to the live stream.


I don’t get it

If I use vod application samsung tv opens rtmp stream (flash player) but it doesn’t open live stream.

Is there any difference between rtmp stream vod and live?

No logs.
