    Default Player for Live streaming

    Hi there,

    I run a live streaming website, and recently installed wowza media server on my dedicated server. I have got Live, DVR and transcode applications working. But how to add these streams to a player, I have tested them with the example players included. I have tried jw player but it does not support http for dvr stream and flow player I can't get it to work.

    I am not a programmer. It is wonderful to have all these features available from wowza server but they are not easily integrated into a player.

    Before my trial runs out I would like to see it working on all devices and then purchase the license.

    Is there an easy solution to this, a player that can play my rtmp streams (dvr) and automatically detect device type, and stream resolution or manually select stream resolution.

    thanks

    Hi
    The Wowza nDVR AddOn only supports HTTP clients such as iOS devices and specific players, nDVR can't play over RTMP or RTSP.
    JW Player does support HTTP clients as HTML5 fallback so again this supports iOS devices and some Android phones that also support Cupertino streaming (Apple HLS).

    I think that JW Player 6 is the version you're looking for which will support the HTML5 fallback
    A guide to use JW Player version 6 can be found here,

    There is an example of using Flowplayer with Wowza DVR on this Flowplayer page:
    http://flash.flowplayer.org/plugins/...streaming.html

    flowplayer("httpstreaming-dvr", "http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer-3.2.16.swf", {
        plugins: {
            f4m: {
                url: "http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer.f4m-3.2.9.swf",
                dvrBufferTime: 12,
                liveBufferTime: 12
            },
            httpstreaming: {
                url: "http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer.httpstreaming-3.2.10.swf"
            }
        },
        clip: {
            url: "http://example.com:1935/dvr/livestream/manifest.f4m?DVR",
            urlResolvers: ['f4m'],
            provider: 'httpstreaming',
            autoPlay: false
        }
    });

    That version of Flowplayer does not support iOS. You need Flowplayer 5, which we have not documented yet.

    Try DL apps.called MX Player from Play Store.I had problem streaming and with this player I can tream live video flawlessly.Make sure you go to setting menu/Decoder/checkS/W decoder(network).Then go back to menu/Network stream/Enter your string rtsp://.......It should work well.Good luck.
