Server side SMIL playlist for static mp3 files

Hi all,

I’m looking for a way to stream a sequence of static mp3 files by calling a static server side SMIL playlist. I’m using HTTP streaming for my application. I have searched for previous answers throughout the forums but haven’t quite found the right one yet.

Streaming a single mp3 file works fine.

What I neew to know is basically:

  1. If this is possible, what should the SMIL playlist look like? This is how mine looks right now:
<stream name="MP3Stream1"></stream>
<playlist name="pl1" playOnStream="MP3Stream1" repeat="false">
<video src="MP3:Part01.mp3" start="0" length="-1"/>
<video src="MP3:Part02.mp3" start="0" length="-1"/>
<video src="MP3:Part03.mp3" start="0" length="-1"/>

The SMIL file is located in the same directory as the content.

  1. How would I form a correct URL to start the stream?

This is what I’ve done:

http://[wowza server address]/app/definst/[content subfolder]/smil:MP3Stream1.smil/playlist.m3u8

The same URL (with the necessary alterations) works fine for calling a single file.

Any input is appreciated, cheers!

Sorry, but there isn’t a way to do this for non-Flash clients at this time.


Ok! Good to know. I guess we’ll have to do the sequencing on the client side then…

Thanks for the quick reply!
