Thread: HTML5 Streaming

  1. Question HTML5 Streaming

    Hello,
    How do I stream to HTML5 through wowza? I don't mean the Iphone. I mean normal browser like Chrome.

    Do you have any configuration examples or any samples that work ? I can see IPhone examples but not the normal browser based HTML5 examples. Please advice.

    Thanks.

    Hi
    As far as I'm aware no web browser supports HTML5 playback...

    Have you had this working in the past?
    Have you had this through another server working but can't get it working through Wowza?

    I don't know what you mean by no browser supports HTML5 playback.

    Youtube provides viewing videos without Flash through HTML5. I need to stream my live video to HTML5 similar to that

    thanks

    Hi
    I may be wrong but I think Youtube has client detection that allows different devices to connect and plays the file with the appropriate player.

    No, they allow viewing the video through HTML5.

    . But it's sad that wowza doesn't support HTML5 tags on the browser. Almost everywhere I look, I see wowza's advertisement on the internet. It would be nice if you could keep the technology cutting edge too. wowza is certainly good but this is not the end. Please support HTML5.

    the problem is there's not yet an official standard for dealing with video in HTML5. Different browsers do it differently. It's really annoying.

    What you need to do is just simply use a player capable of working in HTML5 and point it back at Wowza. I use JWPlayer for this.

    HTML5 has it's quirks, but I CAN'T WAIT to ditch Flash! Looking forward to all of this coming together.

    I realize this is an old thread, but I am looking up streaming abilities with Wowza 3 and Chrome. I came across this and I felt there was confusion that should be clarified.

    :YouTube allows for the HTML5 video tag in Chrome:
    This is true. However, YouTube does NOT do real time streaming. It is doing progressive download. This means that anyone can save the original source video file from within their browser without having to have the video playback in full. For those who think it is working, YouTube (Google) does a great job of obfuscating the code to actually load the video file. For instance, there is use of special repeater server side scripts that ingest bits of a file at a time and spit it out to the browser. This "repeater" file pushes a header value to make the browser think it is, in fact, a video file even though it is a script file (like PHP, or ASP).

    :Wowza is behind on technology, just look at YouTube:
    Wowza does not use the same technology that YouTube uses. How YouTube pushes / presents video content is not actually real time streaming (see above). Wowza DOES do real time streaming.

    That is, there are two technologies in use to present content: progressive download (which is a data stream, but not what is done with people use the term "streaming", it actually loads the entire video as a whole); and real time streaming (this is what most think of as streaming, which is sending a small packet of information, waiting for it to get close to finish playing, then send the next packet while removing the first, and so on).
