    Question Android Audio Streamning

    How can I support Android streaming audio without a empty video?

    IOS, MP3 as playlist Audio Stream Works
    http://wowza.example.com:1935/myapp/.../playlist.m3u8

    Android, AAC in MP4 Wrapper Works
    rtsp://wowza.example.com:1935/myapp/audio.mp4

    Android over RTSP using AAC and MP3 do not work
    rtsp://wowza.example.com:1935/myapp/audio.mp3
    rtsp://wowza.example.com:1935/myapp/audio.aac

    Thanks in advance

    Hi there,
    Take look at the mobile troubleshooting guide:
    How to troubleshoot RTSP/RTP playback

    Under Device Capabilities / Android, it talks about mp3 capability.

    Thanks for the response, I did see that earlier so I was trying AAC, but it had the same problems. Any other ideas?

    Davin,

    Try prepending the URL according to the format:

    rtsp://wowza.example.com:1935/myapp/mp3:audio.mp3
    rtsp://wowza.example.com:1935/myapp/mp4:audio.aac
    Note: For live workflows, Android will only support AAC audio
    Note: With Wowza Streaming Engine 4.x, prepending the 'mp4:' is not necessary with MP4 files as this is inserted by default. Other formats (i.e. FLV, MP3) do require the prefix.
    I hope you find this helpful.

    -Tim

    Using rtsp://wowza.example.com:1935/myapp/mp4:audio.aac I get "Sorry, this video cannot be played" using Galaxy S5 and Nexus 7. For clarity were are only using VOD.

    Use an mp4 or other quicktime container (.mov, .3gp, etc) that only has an AAC audio track, and prefix with mp4:

    mp4:audio.mp4

    Hi DavinB, were you able to fix the problem? Im interested on the same thing.

    Were you able to create a playlist so the player goes through a list of files without having to give the URI to each one?

    Thanks!

    Just went the empty video route.
