    Default Smil Broadcasting Problem


    I'm currently doing the vod broadcast with both smil and mp4 video files. Mp4 works fine so far while smil doesn't.
    Following is the smil section in MediaReaders.xml and the broadcasting smil:
    <Description>SMIL Media Reader</Description>
    <playlist repeat="true" StartTime="2014-01-22 11:00:00" EndTime="2014-01-22 13:00:00">
    <video src="smil:smil/sample0.smil" start="0" length="-1" duration="7200"/>
    <playlist repeat="true" StartTime="2014-01-22 13:00:00" EndTime="2014-01-22 15:00:00">
    <video src="smil:smil/smaple1.smil" start="0" length="-1" duration="7200"/>
    <playlist repeat="true" StartTime="2014-01-22 15:00:00" EndTime="2014-01-22 17:00:00">
    <video src="smil:smil/sample2.smil" start="0" length="-1" duration="7200"/>
    Relative Application settings:
    <!-- LiveStreamPacketizers (separate with commas): cupertinostreamingpacketizer, smoothstreamingpacketizer, sanjosestreamingpacketizer, cupertinostreamingrepeater, smoothstreamingrepeater, sanjosestreamingrepeater, dvrstreamingpacketizer, dvrstreamingrepeater -->
    <LiveStreamPacketizers>cupertinostreamingpacketizer, smoothstreamingpacketizer, sanjosestreamingpacketizer, cupertinostreamingrepeater, smoothstreamingrepeater, sanjosestreamingrepeater</LiveStreamPacketizers>
    <!-- Properties defined here will override any properties defined in conf/Streams.xml for any streams types loaded by this application -->


    If I put smil as prefix, I get this error:
    ERROR server comment 2014-01-22 11:43:17 - - - - - 3.829 - - - - - - - - MediaReaderFactory.getInstance: java.lang.ClassCastException: com.wowza.wms.mediareader.smil.MediaListReaderSMIL cannot be cast to
    If not, then I get this error: Metadata appears to be bad
    I'm using wowza 3.1.2 and current config / libs work fine with all other vod/live streaming, including smil. What may I missed to do the multi-smil broadcasting or this scenario is just not supported?

    Thanks in advance,

    Sorry for the confusion, it appears I've misunderstood something.
    This is just not the way to do multi-bitrate broadcasting.
    Please ignore this thread,
    my apology for disturbance, I don't know how to delete this post.
