Thread: Live video plays fine on andriod but has problems on Strobe player

    Default Live video plays fine on andriod but has problems on Strobe player

    Hello,

    We have a Wowza 3.6.3 installation that we use to serve live videos from ip cameras.
    We are experiencing significant problems playing the video on strobe player. The video frequently freezes, there are significantly delays.
    However using an android device we can watch the same video without any freezes or delays.

    What could be causing the problem?

    Özgür,

    Is it OSMF2 Strobe? Have you tested with the Wowza Flash HTTP example? It is OSMF2. And this one is OSMF2

    One thing we have noticed with OSMF is repeatedly trying to load the same .abst file, which you can see in browser debug console (Network tab in Chrome) when this happens. I think it is related to sketchy network conditions.

    Also make sure you are using the latest version of Wowza (3.6.3.03 at present)

    Dear Richard,

    We are using OSMF2 Strobe.

    However we are not playing from http protocol we are playing the rtmp stream from wowza using strobe.
    When playing rtmp from the http live example (so that we can use the example strobe player) we are noticing the exact same problems.

    We noticed another thing, when we remove the audio stream from the camera side the rtmp video plays significantly smoother. The audio stream is g.711
    Do you have any recommendations for audio settings on the wowza side that will enable the video to play smoothly with audio.

    Best,

    Özgür,

    It might just be bitrate vs bandwidth issue, according to the description. Have you tried the Wowza Flash RTMP player example? A lower bitrate?

    It's very rare that a stream works on Android but not on RTMP desktop.
