Use local .js files for Wowza Player

I am wondering if there is a way to use locally referenced .js files for Wowza Player rather than relying on

//player.wowza.com/player/latest/wowzaplayer.min.js

or

//player.wowza.com/player/<strong>1.0-latest</strong>/wowzaplayer.min.js

We had previously been using this method with the following:

//player.wowza.com/player/<strong>1.1-latest</strong>/wowzaplayer.min.js

Which was working, until suddenly 1.1-latest no longer returned a javascript file. Perhaps this was never supposed to be supported, but the documentation led us to believe that replacing 1.0 with 1.1 would be an acceptable method of keeping us on version 1.1.

This incident led to our player going down in production since there was no warning for this. We are now using 1.0, but would prefer to download the necessary .js files to reference locally in case something like this happens again, and so we do not have to rely on external servers for our audio. Simply downloading the javascript file using the above URL does not work as it looks for other local files.

Please let me know if there is any way of doing this.

Hi Michael,

We no longer offer a locally referenced .js file for Wowza Player.

Take a look at this resource on using a specific version of Wowza player - https://www.wowza.com/docs/how-to-use-a-specific-version-of-wowza-player

Have you tried a format like “X.Y.ZZ.BBBB”?

Thanks,

Amara
