So, just for context here, I’m primarily a UI developer who has not worked much with video in the past.
One of our other developers set up a Wowza live streaming server to stream live feeds from our client’s cameras to web browser and mobile browser clients. As far as I can tell, he has the “intake” side of the system set up properly. I can open vlc, enter the rtsp streaming url (rtsp://10.20.98.102:1935/atmslivevideo/11576-Optelecom_C60e-1-98.83.) and see the video via that method.
I was given this url to set up a test web page to test the streaming over http: http://10.20.98.102:1935/atmslivevideo/11576-Optelecom_C60e-1-98.83.stream/playlist.m3u8
When I go directly to that url, i get a download of playlist.m3u8 with contents:
But when I try to place that url into html 5 video tag, Chrome shows a player but no video. Firefox shows the error “No video with supported format and MINE type found.”
I have admin access to the streaming engine to fix this, but I’m not even sure where to begin looking here.
(1) I should be able to play a video streamed from the Wowza engine using a html5 video tag in Chrome/Firefox under Windows, correct?
(2) if (1) is true, what should I be looking at to attempt to find the reason why this is not currently working?
(3) if (1) is not true, what should I be looking into in order to be able to access these steams?
