Wowza 4 Error on Android only "Error loading player: No playable sources found"

Hello guys,

Ok, so I have a server running Wowza 4 and everything seems to be working fine…

I have setup a live stream from and IP camera and doing the re-streaming of the video.

Its working great on Desktop and iPhone but for some reason can’t get it to work in Android.

I have Apple HLS, Adobe RTMP and RTSP/RTP checked in the application.

My Jw player is configure with the streams:

sources: [{

file: “rtmp://myip/live/”


file: “http://myip/live/


file: “rtsp://myip/live/”



If Im correct the last rtsp should be android playable, however when I try it on my Nexus 7 it display “Error loading player: No playable sources found”

I even try loading the test stream that comes with wowza but no luck either, what can it be?

Thank you!

PS: I email myself the mobile links and the .m3u8 plays on android nativity and I also tried the rtsp file in VLC mac and it played… is this a JW Player issue?


JWPlayer does not support RTSP streams.

Can you try playing back the RTSP stream by typing it directly in your Android web browser? It should detect that it is an RTSP stream and the device should load the media player and start playing back the stream.
