The ModuleCupertinoAutoMultibitrateFilter module for Wowza Streaming Engine™ media server software allows you to filter the audio-only bitrate rendition of the playlist of a live application prepared for the Apple App Store.
Apple requires that streams for the App Store include an audio-only rendition for delivery to Apple iOS devices. However, the multi-bitrate playlist that includes the audio-only rendition may cause problems with other players that support Apple HLS playback. This module can filter player connections based on a player's User-Agent string to turn off the audio-only rendition for players that have trouble playing the stream correctly.

- Extract the contents from the downloaded (zipped) package, and then copy the lib/wse-plugin-cupertinoautomultibitratefilter.jar file from the package to the lib folder in your Wowza Streaming Engine installation ([install-dir]/lib).
