    Thumbs down Wowza Server 3 & IPad Streams Not playing HTML5 Code at all

    The following HTML as per the Apple Development Guide should load a video into the HTML Page of a browser session in and on an Apple Ipad, Ipad 2, Iphone, Iphone 4 and IPod, however it doesn't, if you load the m3u8 directly there will be a video played by quicktime player on the device however when embedded into HTML it does not play at all.

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
    <title>Test iPad, iPod, iPhone</title>
    </head>
    <body>
     <video width="100%" height="590px"  autoplay src="http://27.50.94.91:1935/myapplication/mp4:epicentre2_750_SD.mp4/playlist.m3u8">
     <!-- Flash Fallback. Use any flash video player here. Make sure to keep the vjs-flash-fallback class. -->
     </video>
     <a href="http://27.50.94.91:1935/myapplication/mp4:epicentre2_750_SD.mp4/playlist.m3u8">Watch Video</a>
    </body>
    </html>
    This is the extended HTML from Apple Development on embedding streams and video with HTML5 with the IPad and other devices:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
    <title>Test iPad, iPod, iPhone</title>
    </head>
    <body>
     <video width="100%" height="590px"  autoplay src="http://27.50.94.91:1935/myapplication/mp4:epicentre2_750_SD.mp4/playlist.m3u8" type="vnd.apple.mpegURL">
     <!-- Flash Fallback. Use any flash video player here. Make sure to keep the vjs-flash-fallback class. -->
     </video>
     <a href="http://27.50.94.91:1935/myapplication/mp4:epicentre2_750_SD.mp4/playlist.m3u8">Watch Video</a>
    </body>
    </html>
    This also doesn't work at all in anyway with the device, this is obviously a flaw of wowza seeming the apple development code is SO SIMPLE there could not be a flaw.

    This is for use with a module I am writting called Flowplayer 1.13 for XOOPS :: See here :: http://www.chronolabs.coop/articles/...-1.12/136.html which utilises Flowplayer or Video-JS or just straight html where i have tried all combinations of this to get the player to work but it doesn't with wowza server 3.

    Could you advise, the client would like it to work with their wowza services.
