    Default ABR and Live player with MS Smooth/Silverlight

    Hi all,
    As described in title, how can I create a simple/dummy player (just play the source link) of ABR (the smil file) and stream with MS Smooth? Because I tested with www.wowza.com/testplayers it worked perfectly. But when I tried to create my own Silverlight application with Smooth streaming, all I could play was the vod, not live nor smil file.
    Can you give me some advice for this ?

    Thank you
    Regards,
    Anh-Dzung

    Have you configured your application correctly?
    Set the HTTPStreamers property to:
    smoothstreaming
    And set the Streams/LiveStreamPacketizers property to:
    smoothstreamingpacketizer
    If you aren't using Wowza Streaming Engine 4.0 or later, you must add the following property to the HTTPStreamer/Properties container in [install-dir]/conf/[application]/Application.xml (be sure to get the correct Properties container; there are several in the Application.xml file):
    <Property>
        <Name>smoothStreamingUseSMILBitrates</Name>
        <Value>true</Value>
        <Type>Boolean</Type>
    </Property>

    Hi Salvadore,
    yes, I have all the configurations up and running. When I tried to play with wowza tesplayers, with works well with all (vod/live/smil, I can see it change the bitrate as well). But when I tried with my simple app or even with sample from Wowza, it showed the bitrate, but black screen. Actually the ABR is running well with Adobe HDS. I guess that could be the problem of silverlight versions between the online testplayer and samples.
    Regards

    Anh-Dzung,

    The Silverlight smooth players in the Wowza /examples folder include source. You can modify in Visual Studio (or Expression, but limited)
