    Default HLS Chunklist_....m3u8

    Hi,

    Is it possible to define/change the name of chunklist_nnnnnnnn.m3u8?

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I think your question was also posted here: m3u8 referencing m3u8 issue.

    It would seem that this is a duplicate post. Please do not create multiple posts for the same question.

    Thank you,

    -Tim

    Hi tim_d, it is not a duplicate post.

    I am exploring another route. This is asking if chunklist_nnnn.m3u8 can be redefined/changed within wowza. My other post is asking why my m3u8 fails when it calls playlist.m3u8.

    Two totally different questions.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    The two issues are similar, however, as changing the name of the chunklist is not user definable.

    Thanks tim_d. Calling the chunklist directly may of solved my issue for our systems, thanks. It seems if you try to call the mastlist.m3u8 from another m3u8, it will not work.

    Hi,

    You can call chunklist.m3u8 directly however, it is not recommended, especially for live streams.

    If the request does not have a session id, which is in the automatically generated chunklist url, then one will be assigned. The next time the chunklist url is requested, a new session id will be created. For a single live stream, this would be about every 10 seconds.

    Can you explain your reasoning for wanting to change the urls? There may be another way to do what it is you want to do.

    Roger.
