I'm running wowza HLS livestream with 3 different qualities that I'm pulling from CDN.
With iOS devices, switching of qualities works just fine.
But there is a problem with smart TV devices (LG). Here is what I've found out:
Live stream starts to play. After cca. 20 seconds when quality should change from lower to higher, the stream simply freezes and it doesn't continue to play.
The problem is that somehow player wants to access the same filename (.ts) on stream to which he is switching, and if that stream doesn't have that file it simply refuses to play, example:
This is how it looks the playlist from 3 different qualities:
As you can see the sequence numbers in each stream do not match. The problem is solved by restarting wowza, and the player works fine
This is how it looks like after restart, which is OK:
After about 30min of running wowza, the problem is present again.
Can you please tell me what is causing this unusual behaviour?
