    Default Streaming to Windows Phone 7.5 -> manifest is shown on device

    Hi,
    I've just installed a test wowza 3 server (Linux, centos 5) to stream to mobile phones
    I can stream vod with HLS and RTSP on iPhones and Blackberries

    but I can't stream to a Nokia Lumia (windows mobile 7.5): manifest file (XML text) is appearing on the device screen instead of video
    This device uses silverlight to stream video

    I configured the server as in quick start and user manual (using ports 1935 and 554)

    I'm using an url like this one:
    http://[wowza-address]:1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4/Manifest

    What could be wrong?

    Thank you
    Guido

    It looks like you are typing the URI in the browser bar, which probably will not work. It needs to be played from a Smooth player.

    Try accessing the Wowza Smooth Streaming example (VOD) player via your device's web browser.

    The Smooth player can be found here:
    \examples\SimpleVideoStreaming\clientOSMF\bin-release\

    One way is to copy it to your web browser.

    Thank you randall, I'll try soon.

    Anyway, why is this URL working when I type it in the browser bar of my WM 7.5 Phone:
    http://www.wowza.com/_h264/BigBuckBunny_175k.mov
    ?

    It's from the wowza mobile testing page http://www.wowza.com/html/mobile.html

    That is the perfect solution for me.

    "why is this URL working when I type it in the browser bar of my WM 7.5 Phone:"

    That is just a normal file download from a web server. Perhaps your device is downloading the file, then opening it?

    You're right: that link probably points to an http (progressive) download.

    So I tried copying:
    \examples\SimpleVideoStreaming\clientOSMF\bin-release\
    to my web server and accessing it with Windows Mobile 7.5 smartphone: no luck, it's flash stuff not supported by WM.

    then I copied to my web server:
    \examples\SimpleVideoStreaming\clientSilverlight
    when I access Default.html a "silverlight is required, click here to install it" page appears: when I click I'm redirected to a microsoft page stating that I cannot install silverlight on my device (Nokia Lumia 710).

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

    Thank you in advance
    Guido

    Hi
    Yes, its been known to happen. I have a friend that can't install Silverlight on his laptop running Windows XP even through everything else installs and works fine.

    I think its a Silverlight problem not anything that you are doing wrong.
    If I find a solution or a work around I'll post in here to let you and others know.

    You might be able to do RTSP streaming to Windows mobile. And there is a mobile Silverlight SDK, but we don't have examples built with it.

    Windows Phone 7 devices support Microsoft Smooth Streaming through an application. An application is available on the Microsoft Media Platform Player Framework page.

    As far as I know, Silverlight only supports Smooth Streaming
