Hello! Hopefully someone can help me out - I am new to this, but feel that I'm catching on quick.
Just got 2 videos with VOD Adaptive Bitrate Streaming working successfully on my Wowza Media Server 3 trial edition running on an Amazon EC2 instance. These videos are working beautifully in Microsoft Silverlight and iOS devices when run via the links in the sample Silverlight player and the Safari mobile browser, respectively.
I streamed the videos into an iOS application to test on multiple iOS devices at once. (The iOS app is quite simple - just takes the link from the server and plays the video on the device.) Unfortunately, I ran into trouble.
When iOS device #1 accesses a video, it begins playing as it should. Then, while iOS device #1 is still watching that video, I load the same video on iOS device #2, and the video begins playing there as it should, but at the same time iOS device #1 experiences another instance of the same video begin to play while the first one is still playing on the device. Result is very confused multiple playing of same video overlapping itself. Make sense?
This is such strange behavior! I have no idea what could cause it, and, as I said I am quite new to this, but am learning fast. Is there something simple that I set improperly? To me, this seems like an impossible problem - how could iOS device #1 even know what iOS device #2 is doing? Obviously, the server is getting confused or something, right?
Thank you very much for any help or guesses offered in advance!
