    Default Rtsp woes with android phones via TuneIn

    Hi Wowza forum.

    I very much need your help.

    English is not my first language. Sorry for wrong words.

    My problem:

    I am experiencing choppy audio playback of our 192/44.1 AAC stream on an HTC One X using the TuneIn app.

    The audio only stream comes from a Flash Live Media Encoder - with the main concept encoder - and goes out via the Wowza server at Qbrick/Arkena.

    Their Wowza server outputs 4 streams: 1 flash rtmp stream, 2 streams for iOS devices iPad/iPhone using http://hls... and finally my troubled rtsp stream.

    The flash and hls streams works perfectly...

    Rtsp, sadly not so much.

    Here is what I am doing:

    TuneIn points to this file for our Android users:

    Can anyone help me understand why this stream is not working correctly.
    More than once a minute the stream skips a beat.

    I recently learned that newer Android phones supported HLS. So, I added our HLS stream: to TuneIn as a custom URL. Sadly, I am getting the same skips in the audio - in that stream also.

    Strange, since ios.pls plays perfectly on iOS devices.

    Please advice. I am all out of ideas.

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,

    Hi there, please see the following articles to help set up an application for RTSP streaming:
    How to set up an application for RTSP/RTP streaming

    This guide will help troubleshoot RTSP playback:
    How to troubleshoot RTSP/RTP playback

    Wowza has the option to packetize audio in to .ts (transport stream) chunks instead of .aac (or .mp3), this may improve your success rate with Android clients.

    Thank you, Salvadore.

    I will investigate further.

    Right now I have changed both pls files and inserted mms streams while I figure out what do to.

    I will let you know when I find a solution.

    Best regards,
