Wowza html5 flowplayer with key and behind firewall

Hello there,

we have currently a working wowza engine with flowplayer 3.2. Unfortunately newer Browser don’t support flash anymore. So we would like to use HTML5. Our current setting looks like follow:

<div class="responsive-video">
    <div class="flowplayer" data-swf="" data-ratio="0.57">
        <a id="flow_player" class="videoStreamPlayer" href="">
            <img src="" class="videoStreamPlayer_image" />
        <script type="text/javascript" src="/Assets/flowplayer/flowplayer-3.2.13.min.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="/Assets/flowplayer/flowplayer.ipad-3.2.12.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">
                    key: '#$aaaabbbbccccdddd',
                    clip: {
                        autoPlay: true,
                        provider: 'rtmp',
                    play: {
                        label: 'Play',
                        fadeSpeed: 2000
                    plugins: {
                        rtmp: {

What needs to be done to use HTML5 and only in a fallback scenario for older Browsers use the flowplayer flash engine?

For HTML5 Stream I figured out we could simply use:

<video controls src="http://[WOWZA-IP]:1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4/playlist.m3u8"> </video>


  1. Our wowza stream is behind a firewall and can’t use the IP-Address

  2. Where/How do I put the key?

Is there a proper Solution?

I thank you in advance for any advise.
