I'm having trouble playing part of a file through Flash HTTP Streaming.
I'm trying to play the file "sample.mp4" in WMS content folder. "vod" application configuration is default. The URL for OSMF player looks like this:
This URL should play the part of this video from 1 minute till 3 minutes. However, that doesn't happen, nothing is played; "play" button goes from "play" to "pause" and back to "play" immediately. I tried WMS simple OSMF player and Strobe player; the latter showed correct duration of 2 minutes, but both played nothing.
It only worked for me through HTTP Flash streaming when wowzaplaystart was set to a value from 0 to 3250 (figured by trial and error) - but it played form the beginning regardless of that value. The wowzaplayduration parameter seems to be working for any values. As for RTMP streaming, passing parameters to NetStream.play() works fine.
