    Default Samsung TV app: changing ordering of URL parameters for HLS requests

    Hello,

    Is there a way we can change the ordering of URL parameters for HLS requests?

    The use case here is that for Samsung TV apps, in order for the app to recognize a stream as HLS, the URL needs to be appended with "|COMPONENT=HLS". For example: "http://<server>:1935/cdn/_definst_/path/to/file/playlist.m3u8?|COMPONENT=HLS".

    However, when the player performs a GET request on the playlist, the returned playlist components are appended with the Wowza session ID:

    "http://<server>:1935/cdn-live/_definst_/path/to/file/playlist.m3u8?|COMPONENT=HLS&wowzasessionid=555555"

    As a result, "|COMPONENT=HLS" is no longer at the end of the URL, and the Samsung player does not recognize the streams as HLS.

    Is there a way around this so that we can change the ordering the URL parameters?

    Where is the |COMPONENT=HLS coming from? We are not adding it to the URL. How and where is this being added to the URL? This seems more like a Samsung issue. Have you contacted them? It seems like it should be valid to use query parameters as part of the media names. It seems like this would be a common occurance.

    Since we are not adding the |COMPONENT=HLS part to the URL I am not sure how we would control the order. It seems like this is being done outside of the Wowza Media Server. Also, if you contact us directly at support@wowza.com we might have another solution for this.

    To answer Charlie's question, the "|COMPONENT=HLS" is a requirement for the Samsung app in order for the app to recognize the stream as HLS, and needs to be appended to the end of a URL by whoever is writing the code for the app. I have followed up with support about this issue. Thanks.
