I went through the first few of the tutorials on how to set up web playback of videos, and while my website works and serves videos on-demand properly when *I* access it, it doesn't work for other people.
I used the OSMF at http://www.osmf.org/configurator/fmp/, clicked yes on "Are you using HTTP Streaming..." and inputted the Video Source URL as given here http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....ero-starttimes, though obviously I added my IP address, and under Advanced I chose "Recorded."
(I got my IP address by typing ipconfig into the command prompt, and I assume/hope my IP address is the "IPv4 Address.")
I then clicked Preview and copied the generated HTML code into my website. When *I* use the player on my website, it works fine. It just doesn't work for anyone else.
I went here:
and saw that there are some ports I should open. I added rules to my firewall to allow both inbound and outbound connections through
TCP 1935, 8084-8086 and UDP 6970-9999. This, however....causes playback on my end to stop working.
Either with or without the firewall rule though, the app here http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ tells me that port 1935 is closed. In fact, even when I completely turn off Windows Firewall the tool tells me
port 1935 is closed.
Still not having any luck. Any ideas would be appreciated.
