Wowza Community

This video file cannot be played. (Error Code: 102630)

How to solve this…?

You can find out what the error 102630 means in the article below.

Depending upon the version of JW Player you are using, they may no longer support RTMP. Your URL would look as follows.


Below is JW Players configuration reference page. They have depreciated RTMP support for version 8.

Also note that Adobe is ending support for their Flash Player at the end of 2020 as mentioned in their article below.

Thank you!

Rachel, if you need both of rtmp & hls for some reason ( like rtmp live playback latency less than hls latency ) you need to allow flash player in your browser . In chrome click info button , then click settings button and allow flash.

Also you need to define your source in jw player like

“sources”: [ {fileType: ‘rtmp’,file: ‘rtmp://ip/test/test’}, {fileType: ‘m3u8’,file: ‘http:/ip:1935/test/test/playlist.m3u8’}

This is an invalid file error code most likely having to do with your url and player support in the browser.

This doc will show you how to properly configure an RTMP stream.

You can test your stream with one of Wowza’s players and to see if it is a protocol or config issue. We have several 3rd party options in addition to the Wowza Player:

If you don’t currently have a Wowza license, you can test your stream for free in Wowza Streaming Engine.

Kevin Moore’s answer should be marked as the best answer.

The error is not caused by player support in the browser - the Best Answer above is incorrect.

As per the documentation, error 102630 is due to an empty playlist being selected, so the media file is linked to incorrectly or is missing in the source, It is not the client browser at fault.

Read and scroll down to the “Empty Playlist” section and read the details on error 102630
