    Default Using own silverlight

    I asked this In my last thread but I think this should be it's own. I currently have the streaming working with your sample video and your player. I am trying to now use my silverlight player to play a video and can not figure it out. Should I be able to edit the player to point at http://[wowza-address]:1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4/Manifest for the vidieo file? I have tried this a bunch of ways and nothing happens if I try to do this using your sample video I get the same result. Basically I want to be able to user our modified winnove silverlight player with wowza and I can't get the content to stream. I also changed the wmv file to mp4 and this works just fine localy but not when streaming. I have looked through the helpfiles and cannot find anything that would help me with this.

    So in my player.htm file I edited the below line but it is not streaming the file over. I am guessing that I am missing something simple.

    <param name="initparams" value=
    "media_url=http://(server IP):1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4/Manifest

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Robert,

    It doesn't work with the Wowza Silverlight player? Is there a clue in the access and error logs?

    It is best to run in stand-alone (/bin/startup.bat) mode when testing so you can see log output in the console.

    It does work with the Wowza silverlight debug player but I am tring to get it to work with our winnov silverlight player. In the winnove silverlight player.htm file I have made the following changes (see below) however I get no response from wowza (even in startup.bat)?? Is that the right url I should be using in our player??

    <param name="initparams" value=
    "media_url=http://(server IP):1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4/Manifest

    Thanks

    Rob,

    Sorry, I'm not familiar with that player. It might not work with smoothstreaming. Have you tried the Expression Encoder templates? They do work.

    To be clear is the path I am using correct. I just want to be sure so I can trouble shoot this.

    <param name="initparams" value=
    "media_url=http://(server IP):1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4/Manifest

    Hi Rob,

    Yes it looks correct according to the VOD Tutorial: http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....on-demand-file

    Ok I have been playing with this for a while and this test I am doing is a big deal as it will make or break wowza for use at here and this is a big project that could be a showcase for this product as well. Please walk me through if someone is using their own steps needed to stream from wowza to player. So for instance If I have just captured something in Silverlight h.264 aac. I wind up with a few files player.htm, player.xap, media.mp4 job.xej data.xml and finally any images that may have been captured. So right now if I move the media.mp4 file to the content folder within the wowza install directory and then edit my player.htm file with the following "<param name="initparams" value=
    "media_url=http://(server IP):1935/vod/mp4:media.mp4/Manifest
    nothing happens. If I just try simply playing the sample.mp4 in this same setup with my player nothing happens. I am sure I am missing something and I need to know from someone at Wowza if I am doing something wrong as the tutorial or instructions don't explain this or if they do I am missing it as I only see information for your player. John if you are monitoring can you assist in providing me with this information. If I have a problem that has to do with my player that is one thing but I need to know I have everything where it needs to be in Wowza so I can say without a doubt the problem has to do with the player we are using and not just a configuration issue with my content and wowza.
    Thank you,

    Hi
    If you get no response from Wowza at all I think its safe to say its the player that's coursing the problem.

    However, when I had a look at [install-dir]/examples/SimpleVideoStreaming/clientSilverlight/Default.html the "player" doesn't have mp4: in the url,
    I don't think it will make a difference but its worth trying.

    What player is it? Is this your custom player?

    The mp4: prefix was missing in the example (should be there in latest example), and it should be there for good form, but in this case it is the default, so it is optional
