    Default URL missing - playlist.m3u8 - VLC

    Hi Guys,

    I have created a HLS stream and tested on VLC palyer, it seems to work. But its not working when i try to open my playlist from VLC. Because it doesnt contain the URL for the Server. Then i added following
    to my application.xml
    HTTPStreamers/Properties:
    <Property>
    <Name>cupertinoRelativePlaylistPlaylists</Name>
    <Value>true</Value>
    <Type>Boolean</Type>
    </Property>

    Still i cant play my playlist on windows (VLC player).

    Can someone help me to solve this please .
    Thanks

    Hi
    Does this work for you when playing with an iOS device?
    Are you using a .smil file?

    Take a look here,

    Whats the full url that you are using to access the stream?

    As far as I know and have seen, cupertinostreaming (HLS) does not work in VLC. You can do RTSP stream to VLC

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for the information. Actually i'm using the following URL in VLC
    http://X.X.X.X:1935/vod/mp4:ios.m4v/playlist.m3u8

    when i open the playlist file it appears like this (without the stream URL)

    #EXTM3U
    #EXT-X-VERSION:2
    #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1,BANDWIDTH=1785435,CODECS="avc1.66.30, mp4a.40.2",RESOLUTION=640x360playlist.m3u8?wowzasessionid=1034394804


    Thanks,

    From your OP you have cupertinoRelativePlaylistPlaylists as true when it should be false

    Hi
    The url looks correct and a session id is shows that the stream is working.
    If you want the full url, Joexromero is correct cupertinoRelativePlaylistPlaylists should be false.
