This is a strange one.
I have successfully managed to stream Smooth Streaming ABR to a silverlight player on my website with the transcoder option. I called this application "startup2"
Then I tried to do the same thing but without the transcoder under application "startup1". I can not play this
Obviously with the ABR version I am using a smil file
Question is, does a single stream of Smooth also need a smil file? I thought not
When I use the test smooth streaming player included in Wowza I can connect and view the stream http://IP ADDRESS/startup1/myStream/Manifest but using this source in my website player it does not work... "could not open media xxx manifest location, an error 4001 occurred"
I also created a smil file for this application and removed all but the single stream like this but it too did not work
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<video height="360" src="myStream"
<param name="videoBitrate" value="867000" valuetype="data"></param>
So I am starting to think that it is a limitation of the silverlight player I am using ( from Expression Encoder templates)? Is this possible, that it does not support single stream Smooth Streaming ?
