• How to fix incorrect stream path problems with some Flash players (ModuleFixStreamPath)

    This module is used to fix a problem that sometimes occurs in the stream path with some Flash players. Some Flash players that accept a single string for RTMP connection and stream name do not separate these correctly when content is stored in a subfolder of an application's content location. This module can fix this problem.

    For example, given a URL of this form:
    rtmp://[wowza-address]:1935/vod/_definst_/mp4:subfolder/sample.mp4
    A Flash player will incorrectly use this to make the following RTMP connection:
    rtmp://[wowza-address]:1935/vod/_definst_/mp4:subfolder
    Then the player will try to play "sample.mp4" and fail, instead of correctly playing "mp4:subfolder/sample.mp4."

    A compiled version of this module is included in the Wowza Module Collection.
