Having some issues which I hope maybe someone can help.
Here's my setup: an HP DL360p G8 server with a single hex-core Xeon and 8GB RAM, 4 SSDs in RAID, running CentOS 6.4 and Wowza 3.6.2. This handles about 70 incoming streams, and so far we've not had enough concurrent viewers to make it break a sweat.
But, there's an annoying issue with HLS. It seems that after 6 hours or so, it takes longer and longer for streaming to start (on JW6 and VLC on PC). And on Android, normally most 4.x+ devices can play HLS quite well, then all of a sudden, none are able to start new streams, whether it's MX Player, VLC, or our own all utilizing standard VideoView. If I stop and restart Wowza, all these issues go away, for a while anyway.
So I am at quite a loss, I've returned the application.xml to default, I disabled WMSAuth on the server, but it does not help. In the past I used Wowza on the same hardware, but running Windows Server 2008, and did not experience these problems. Should I go back to that OS? Also, I'm currently downloading the 18.104.22.168 patch, maybe it will help. But I would appreciate any other ideas!
