Thread: Issue with Audio Only Rendition.

  1. #1

    Default Issue with Audio Only Rendition.

    Hi,

    We are using Wowza 3.0.3 streams are working fine on Roku, Android, Apple and Boxee.

    But after we have added the Audio Only Rendition the streams are stopped working on Roku. But working fine on Apple devices and Boxee.

    We are using the direct single stream instead of SMIL method.

    Is their any solution for this issue?

    regards,
    Waseem

    Hi
    Roku uses a xml type playlist and the playlist has a range of parameters perhaps this is configured wrong (now that there is no video), Or roku just wont play an audio only stream.

    How are you accessing the stream?,
    are you using the Roku playlist,?
    Can you post the Roku playlist you are using if you are using one?

    Also, the 64kbs audio only stream is too low bitrate for Roku. They used to have 250kbs minimum, but that might be 800kbs currently

    Hi,

    The stream url that we are using for Roku, Apple devices and boxee is some thing like that

    http://server/live/abc.stream/playlist.m3u8

    and it is working fine on Apple and Boxee. On apple stream is switching to Audio Only successfully when bandwidth goes down otherwise both Audio and Video is showing.

    On Roku the loading bar stucks in middle and it didnt play Audio or video just stucks in loading process.
