    Default http Streaming for FLV Files

    I have working setup of Wowza server, and successfully streaming using RTMP, now I want to use HTTP streaming, i have gone through the sample provided in which MP4 is streamed using http streaming, but i want to stream .flv file, for which i don't find any sample, tried hard to do so but failed (Error: Stream not found null).

    [Stream: http://<ServerIP>:1935/vod/sample.flv]

    sample.flv is also thr in [install-dir]/content

    Please help

    To stream to protocols using http for delivery, check out the following:

    HDS
    Flash HTTP

    HLS
    Cupertino

    Check out the playback url format.

    thanx matt_y for the reply

    i have checked the url, but failed to do so. In the links posted by you mp4 file is used for http streaming, but i am using flv file for http streaming. (for the purpose i am using the page [install dir]\examples\VideoOnDemandStreaming\FlashHTTPPlayer\Player.html). In the the player.html i am giving stream = http://<MyserverIP>:1935/vod/flv:sample.flv

    Also tried stream = http://<MyserverIP>:1935/vod/sample.flv

    Here vod is the default vod application and sample.flv is also present in the [install dir]\content\

    Also please tell me if any change is required in the "conf/application.xml" Or "conf/vod/application.xml" for http streaming

    please reply

    Sorry I missed that you were referencing a flv file. They are not supported for cupertino streaming to iOS devices. It has to be Quicktime (mp4, mov, m4v etc) container with h264 video and AAC/mp3 audio.

    However, for valid containers, you'll want to add the following to your HTTPStreamers property for iOS playback:

    <HTTPStreamers>cupertinostreaming</HTTPStreamers>

    Also Note that on the playback side (for cupertino) looks like:

    http://wowza-ip-address:1935/vod/mp4.../playlist.m3u8
