    Default Trouble Streaming Files Represented by Symbolic Links

    I'm trying to connect WOWZA to our Fedora-based digital repository service. Fedora stores digital assets in a rather complicated directory structure and stores files without extensions. My goal is to:

    1. Create a symbolic link to a video asset within the WOWZA datastreamStore directory
    2. Generate a simple HTML wrapper to set up the JW Player

    I'm able to get the link created across the servers (connected on the same NFS) as seen here: http://libwowza.neu.edu/datastreamSt...ams/187282.mp4, where 187282.mp4 is a symbolic link to a file within the Fedora data directory.
    When I try to pass this file to JW Player, I get an error indicating that the file ID was not found on the server: http://libwowza.neu.edu/test2.html, using this simplified code:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>JW Player 6</title>

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/jwplayer/jwplayer.js" ></script>
    </head>

    <body>

    <div id="player">Loading the player...</div>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    jwplayer("player").setup({
    sources: [{
    file: "rtmp://libwowza.neu.edu:1935/datastreamStore/datastreams/vod/mp4:187282.mp4"
    },{
    file: "http://libwowza.neu.edu:1935/datastreamStore/datastreams/187282.mp4/playlist.m3u8"
    }],
    rtmp: {
    bufferlength: 3
    },
    });
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    I'm not sure why this doesn't work...
    Any help would be more than greatly appreciated!

    Best

    Hello Patrick,

    It seems the page you referred to, the video plays fine. Has the problem been resolved or can you clarify the issue a bit more?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Yes -- just realized I edited the wrong Application.xml file, so it wasn't able to find the file.

    Thanks!

    If you haven't seen already, you'll also likely want to change your rtmp link to the following:

    rtmp://libwowza.neu.edu:1935/datastreamStore/datastreams/_definst_/mp4:187282.mp4
