What is the MP3 audio codec details? Try 44100Hz, 128kbs, Stereo.
You might have to wait a few more seconds to start playback. You started playback in the iphone 15 seconds after publish, which might not be enough.
If you are not doing Smooth or Sanjose, you can take those out of the LiveStreamPacketizers list. This should help with latency, because there were no Cupertino chunks when you started playback in IPhone from what I see in the logs. There has to be 3 chunks, and Wowza had just created the 3rd when you disconnected.
I do see two identical connections with different user-agents, that are created and destroyed at the same time and have the same sc-bytes value on the destroy. It is common to see a 2nd empty session when you use m3u8 url directly in a browser, but I don't think it would be so identical and have same sc-bytes value.
I can't reach that server, I assume it is a private edu lan. Is there anyway to make it accessible? If so, you can send link to email@example.com. Include a link to this thread for reference.
If you are opening m3u8 directly or in anchor (<a>) tag, then try with HTML5 video tag instead
