    Default Problem: Our Debian 6 servers will not stream HLS on-demand

    Sorry, post got corrupted when we edited it:

    We now believe this was a problem not specifically with Debian, but with a conf/application.xml file. Here is the file that is causing the problem:

    Was this issue resolved?

    Default

    Not totally, although see the original post for more informaiton. The original post got corrupted when we edited it, but has now been restored

    It looks ok at first glance. We'd need some more info to narrow down the problem, such as your stream URI, or any error messages.

    Test with the examples: How-to-play-a-video-on-demand-file

    Default

    For on-demand streaming do not add anything to the <LiveStreamPacketizers> list. It should be empty. This is only used for live streaming not for video on demand.

    Thanks, Charlie, that did it. Oversight on our part.
