    Angry I can't do streaming from WOWZA to my Android device.

    I do streaming from wowza to flash player, but I can't do streaming from wowza to an Android device, if I put it
    server: rtmp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:1935/app
    Stream: mp3:track_21340.mp3
    then I hit play button and streaming start, but now I need a way to pass this to my Android phone. I am newer in Wowza's world and I'll appreciate you help so much.
    Best regards.

    Use rtsp in the device browser, like this:

    rtsp://[wowza-address]:1935/vod/mp3:track_21340.mp3

    Some Android devices support Flash and therefore RTMP and Flash HTTP (sanjose) streaming, and some versions support cupertino streaming using HTML5 video tag and playlist.m3u8 url. The problem with these methods is that they are only supported in some versions and we have mixed reports about how well these methods work even in supported versions. So we recommend RTSP to stream to Android

    First of all thanks for your answer Richard, but it didn't work, Do I need any modification on my Application.xml to use rtsp protocol, Do I have to use other port different to 1935. Thanks in advance.

    Test in VLC. If it works, does it start quickly, or take about 10 seconds or more? If long start, take a look at Tools > Codec info. Is there two sets of audio and video info? That indicates that UDP ports are blocked between Wowza and your clients.

    First, make sure you have followed this post:

    And take a look at this guide:

    Hello Richard, I have reviewed these two post that you recommended to me, and then I have installed VLC and I have tested it, and effectively as you said, it took a long for start, and in Tools/Codec Inf are two sets Stream 0.... and Stream 1..... How can I unblock the UDP ports that are blocking betrween Wowza and Clients?
    Thanks in advance.

    First look at your firewall, allow UDP 0-65535. If you have a router you also need to port-forward, there are guides at portforward.com

    Richard if I put it: rtsp://199.168.187.217:1935/vod/mp3:track_21325.mp3 on VLC it plays, but if I put it on Media player on my android Device it doesn't work, give Lost connection. Have any idea what format I have to pass to Media Player on android device?

    A lot of Android devices do not stream mp3. Transcode the mp3 to a aac audio track in a mp4 file to playback in Android. In FFmpeg, something like this:

    ffmpeg -y -i song.mp3 -acodec aac -ac 2 -ar 44100 -vn song.mp4
    And you have that UDP problem: ports are blocked, evidently. So make sure you take care of that.

    Hello Richard, I have all UDP ports opened, 0-65535 and I still without streaming on mi Android devices. Does do Wowza streaming with http protocol, something like this
    : http://xx.xx.xx.xx:1935/vod/mp3:track_1.mp3?
    I have now another streaming server that do streaming the files in http format, something like that: http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx/album_1/track_1.mp3 and I have no problems with neither device, my problem is I need high availability because my company have grown and we have a lot of user, and for that reason I need Wowsa streaming server, only for streaming mp3 to Phones, what would be your advice?
    Best Regards.

    The http url is probably just progressive download. MP3 might work with progressive download, but not supported for streaming, at least not in older versions.
