    Default vod playing problem with mp4 files

    hi,

    We are having problems with playing mp4 files one after another when previous one completed. Problem is second video plays but audio and video sync lost, sound playing okay but videos freezes for a long time, sometimes not playing at all. Pausing and playing again can't solve the problem..


    Is there any quick solution for this or is there something abnormal in installation of wowza server?

    What technique are you using to play these files one after the other? If you are using server-side playlist the problem is probably change in audio and/or video codec. The encoding should be as close to identical as possible.

    files are identical and client side is requesting other file after finished one..

    I don't think the sequencing matters in that case, Flash is just playing another video. Does a video that is a problem in this scenario play without problems when it is played singly? Have you tried closing the netstream and opening a new one to play the next video?

    when we had that problem just switched to flv container to check if we could get same error and flv files didnt show same behavior. we decided to use flv files. we ve just checked ns.close() with mp4 files and it worked

    thanks
