    Wink (another) vod to apple family question

    Hello

    i have a mp4 that plays fine in ipad and ipod touch (and chrome and safari) if i put the address in the navigator, like http://www.xxx.com/librairy/myvideo.mp4

    i have a flash swf app that plays fine this video using rtmp with

    netconnection: rtmp://www.xxx.com:1935/vod

    play stream _vodStream.play("mp4":"+myvideo,0);

    but in my adobe air for ipad app, it's not working. here are the apps logs (where i can see audio and video codec are ok):

    vod application.xml settings:

    <StreamType>default</StreamType>
     <StorageDir>/usr/local/apache/sites/xxx.com/htdocs/librairy</StorageDir>
    i have to mention that when launching the air app on my computer the video plays fine also, it's not working only in ipad/iphone. (but live streaming works fine...haha i miss the time when video on internet was simple and easy )

    and also it's working ok with the same air app on android devices...please all, sell your iPain stufff

    is there anything i'm doing wrong ?

    i'm using latest wowza build

    thank you for your help

    Hi
    I don't think iOS devices can play a flash stream, they can only use HLS.

    hi and thanks for your reply

    IOS DOES read live flash stream in air app, i'm 100% sure of, i'm doing it on ipad and ipod touch (and so i guess it will work on iphone too)...so why could it play live stream (which is by the way flv/speex) and not MP4 vod ?

    but then, how could i play this video using HLS from an air app ? air only support rtmp if im correct (i never tryed hls from flash so maybe i'm wrong)

    thank you

    ok, i've got my answer, so simple netconnection with null will allow to play progressive dl flv and mp4 in air for ios

    thank you for your help
    EDIT: it's working on the desktop but not once installed on iPain devices...still stuck

    there is the stageVideo option in air, but it has to be placed below other elements, so no interest in my case...

    Hi
    It is my understanding that flash doesn't play through an iOS device, however I have never used the "Air App".

    That being said I personally would create a link on my website for the iOS device to connect to the application created in Wowza.
    This will then play every time using HLS which is the method iOS devices are designed to use and avoid all this complication...

    hi and thank you for your reply, even if to me the complication is to put a link, or to open a link rather that direct play in my app, which would allow chatting, filesharing, whiteboard while the video plays, as my app is a video conferencing app in which the "human guidelines" stuff is to actually allow people to interact live with what they see or ear...sounds impossible on iPain stuff

    thank you for your reply anyway...love u apple haha

    just add a thought: as live streaming from flash client to air ios app works, would it possible to "cheat" the player, and stream a vod video as a live stream ? it would solve my problem...maybe something could be done on wowza side to achieve this, please let me know your thoughts

    thanks

    Wowza can do live stream from file:

    hi Richard thanks for your reply

    i'll give it a try, but before spending time on it i'd like to be sure about something: the listener needs a playlist to be created. my need would be to define a video source on the fly: my users actually adds their video to some librairy, which is available from within my flash app, then they can select the video they want to start in the conference room. is it possible with the plugin you mentionned ?

    thank you for your help

    Hi
    This may come in useful for you, it was in the showcase section.
    http://www.wowza.com/forums/showthre...ll-Video-Share

    Apparently the player works with iOS and Andriod clients as well as Flash (I have not tested this player)

    *working on this player or asking for the ability to text chat while the player is running could be an option, you would have to chat to the development team of the player.
