Thread: Question about Android

  1. #1

    Default Question about Android

    We have run a wowza server for the past three years. recently we have users that use android devices. Every thing streams correctly using Jwplayer on desktops and IOS devices. Android on the other hand does not. What is the best implementation so that our users can watch live and VOD content on these devices? Should we look at getting a different player?

    I would like to stay away from adding a separate link for android devices.

    The easiest and most effective way to stream to Android is over RTSP.
    Here is a sample of how to add this to JW Player:
    <title>JW Player 6</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/jwplayer/jwplayer.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">jwplayer.key="[jwplayer-key]";</script>
    <div id="player"><a href="rtsp://[wowza-ip-address]:1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4">RTSP Link</a></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    		sources: [{
    			file: "rtmp://[wowza-ip-address]:1935/vod/mp4:sample.mp4"
    			file: "http://[wowza-ip-address]:1935/vod/sample.mp4/playlist.m3u8"
    		rtmp: {
    			bufferlength: 3
    		fallback: false
    For more information please see this article on JW Player's website:
