    Default CODECS attribute not added to HLS playlist generated from SMIL file

    I created a SMIL file that contains a video playlist with different bitrates. When I retrieve the playlist for HLS streaming, I noticed the CODECS attribute was missing:

    $ curl http://<host>/vod/smil:bigbuckbunny.smil/playlist.m3u8
    I upgraded my install to The development builds page states that the patch contains a fix for this:

    "Fixed Apple HLS streaming when using SMIL files to be sure cupertinoCalculateCodecs and cupertinoCalculateResolution is properly honored"

    I'm not seeing this. I followed the instructions in README.txt to the letter and I checked that the version that is running is but I'm not seeing the CODECS attribute being added to the generated playlist. Any thoughts?

    One thing I did notice is that the README says, 'Copy contents of "bin", "conf", "lib" and "lib-native" folders ...", but there is no "conf" folder in the download.

    Resolution and codec is something you have to add manually.
    Please see the following guide,

    Thanks for pointing this out but it's a typo, you do not need to replace or add anything in the [Wowza-install]/conf directory for this patch.
