    Default Can't playback a streaming in client PC

    Hi,

    I installed Wowza Media Server to a PC in a local network, and be able to playback the publishd stream using "[install-dir]/examples/LiveVideoStreaming/FlashRTMPPlayer/player.html". But I failed to play the stream when I try to open this stream in another PC, which is with this local network as well, followig these formats:

    http://[wowza-ip-address]:1935/live/...m/manifest.f4m
    or
    http://<webserver>/FlashHTTPPlayer/player.html

    It's not played in an Android device as well.

    I referred to this post http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?37, and it says "The stream can only be played from an OSMF-based Flash player that's embedded in a webpage." So does this mean I need to configure every client browser to embed this "OSMF-based Flash player"? What if cumstomers come and watch the streaming? Must I configure their web browsers before let them watch it

    Sorry that I have to re-post my problem, although it was mentioned in my previous post in which I didn't describe the question clearly.

    Thank you.

    You place these player files on your web server. Then users navigate to your player page(s). The browser loads the html, javascript, swf files, etc that are stored on your web server. No per client configuration is needed, just provide a link to your web page with a player. Then the player running in the browser connects to Wowza and streams. The web server's only role is to store the player files and send them to a client browsers.

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for the clarification and sorry for my late response, I was not in office last several days. I use your guide and it works well now. Just I play the streaming in Apple devices. The format is http://&#91;wowza-ip-address]:1935/live/.../playlist.m3u8 right? I could play before without putting the Wowza into web server. Any ideas please? Thank you.

    The format is as follows (to confirm):

    http://[your-wowza-ip]:1935/[application-name]/[appinstance]/[streamname]/playlist.m3u8

    "I could play before without putting the Wowza into web server" - what do you mean here? You don't have to have Wowza on the same machine as your web server.

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you.

    I followed the URL but still failed to play the stream.

    The reason I said "without web server" is that previously I just installed the Wowza in a computer which was not a web server, just a common one within our network. I entered the URL following the format in another PC and got the stream played. Now I installed the IIS and make that PC to a web server, but this I can't get the stream.

    Do I need to check any setting on the streaming encoding, or edit anything in Application.xml file?

    Thank you.

    I found some messages from the Wowza log
    INFO Cupertino disconnect 162003439
    ...
    Java.lang.OutOfMemoryError:Java heap space

    Sometimes it shows the error of "Fail to connect to [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx] (my multicase ip address)".

    Any clues? Thank you.

    The Java.lang.OutOfMemoryError:Java heap space error
    usually means that not enough memory has been allocated to the heap space.
    Make sure the Wowza server is properly tuned by following the performance tuning guide.
    The other error means that the stream cannot be reacched at that address.
    You may want to tell Wowza directly which network interface the multicast streaming address is available on by telling Wowza to bind to that specific card.
    This article details how that can be done.
