Summary: We have an adaptive bitrate live stream that we are injecting captions to. We are also using our own flash player to embed the stream into webpages. The stream looks great on every platform except iOS.
Symptoms we are experiencing: longer captions flash up for a split second and immediately clear from the screen. Sometimes only a word (or just a single letter too) will show up in the lower right hand corner of the caption area. Some (but not all) of the captions look like they are getting truncated by other captions.
Other important information: I can see the captions before they get sent to the stream and they look perfectly fine. Also the captions look fine on iOS if viewed through the static/non-adaptive stream.
What I want to know is if Wowza is causing this unexpected behavior or is this a bug in our player? (my gut tells me it's the player but I want to get a second opinion before I start complaining to our front-end devs)
