    Default Live streaming to non-IOS devices not using Flash

    Hallo

    I've got JWPlayer setup as such:

    jwplayer('mediaplayer').setup({
    'id': 'playerID',
    'width': '90%',
    'provider': 'rtmp',
    'streamer': 'rtmp://xxx.amazonaws.com:1935/live',
    'file': 'myStream',
    'modes': [
    {
    type: 'flash',
    src: '/jwplayer/player.swf'
    },
    {
    type: 'html5',
    config: {
    'file': "http://xxx.amazonaws.com:1935/live/myStream/playlist.m3u8",
    'provider': 'video',
    }
    }

    ]
    });

    So it uses flash with an HTML5 fallback.

    Problem is that Flash support is dwindling fast. The new Android update has stopped supporting it.
    How do I support non-IOS devices with live streaming?

    Thanks

    Android accepts RTSP streams:
    rtsp://xxx.amazonaws.com:1935/live/myStream

    See here:

    There's not a good way to embed it for Android, so you could either just publish the rtsp address in a hyperlink, or make a PHP-type script that redirects to it (perhaps only if it detects the Android OS?).

    Thanks. Works a treat on the devices tested so far.
