• How to turn off data event processing for Apple HLS streams

    Note: Wowza Media Server™ 3.0.5 or later is required.

    In Wowza Media Server 3, support was added to convert Apple HTTP Live Streaming AMF data events into timed metadata events. This feature is supported by all Apple-based playback devices. These data events can cause problems with some non-Apple based players that support Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) streams. To turn off the processing of data events do the following:

    For live streaming, add the following property to the LiveStreamPacketizer/Properties container in [install-dir]/conf/[application]/Application.xml:
    <Property>
    	<Name>cupertinoEnableDataEvents</Name>
    	<Value>false</Value>
    	<Type>Boolean</Type>
    </Property>
    For video on demand streaming, add the following property to the HTTPStreamer/Properties container in [install-dir]/conf/[application]/Application.xml:
    <Property>
    	<Name>cupertinoEnableDataEvents</Name>
    	<Value>false</Value>
    	<Type>Boolean</Type>
    </Property>
