I'm having a strange problem streaming HLS on original iPad, running latest iOS5.
Here is a simple video tag that I use:
It works as expected in a webpage on iPhone4S. First showing the Play icon on top and when that clicked, plays full screen. All good here.<video src="http://192.168.1.19:1935/app_demo/myStream.sdp/playlist.m3u8" width="640" height="390" autoplay> Your browser does not support the video tag. </video>
When I try to input the URL directly into Safari URL on iPad:
http://192.168.1.19:1935/app_demo/myStream.sdp/playlist.m3u8, it ALSO works fine.
When I try to open the same exact webpage on iPad, it's just showing the black rectangle, no Play icon on top, not responding to touch either.
I then decided to try Apple original samples here:
And surprisingly my old iPad easily handles both Basic and Advanced HLS without a hitch.
I'm also positive that this used to work when I was running full evaluation version, but now I downloaded (the same Wowza version) and installed Developer Evaluation.
What could be wrong?
