From How to Set Up video on demand streaming
To play using Adobe Flash player (San Jose/Flash HTTP)
Double-click [install-dir]/examples/SimpleVideoStreaming/clientOSMF/bin-release/SimpleOSMFPlayer.html, enter the information below and click the Play button.
Note: The HTTP link above will not play directly in a browser. The stream can only be played from an OSMF based Flash player that is embedded in an HTML page. To play the stream from a remote system, copy the contents of the clientOSMF/bin-release folder to a web server.
...so the SimpleOSMFPlayer.html example part is working o.k. using wowza, but I cannot seem to get this to work from a webserver. I tried copying the contents of clientOSMF/bin-release to the base of my joomla and created an article to try to mimic SimpleOSMFPlayer.html.
The page briefly shows the player, then the player disappears, and there is no "play" button. The instructions above, just do not go far enough in helping to get this working for a client thru a browser.
I need some help with a clear description of the script, with correct flashvars setup etc. to make this work when the client hits a link on a webpage and it will play using wowza's SimpleOSMFPlayer.swf or swfobject.js. Does that kind of tutorial exist someplace?
