    Default Null Pointer Exception when trying to play nDVR from smil

    Hi Guys,

    I am having a wierd problem with nDVR recordings. When I play the nDVR using the smil file like this:


    Wowza gives an Null Pointer error like below:

    2014-12-10 16:03:42 CET comment server ERROR 500 - HTTPStreamerAdapterCupertinoStreamer.onPlaylist: java.lang.NullPointerException|at|at|at|at|at|

    The smil file contains the following:

    <video src="mp4:9-226750_720p" system-bitrate="1596000" width="640" height="360">
    <video src="mp4:9-226750_360p" system-bitrate="896000" width="640" height="360">
    <video src="mp4:9-226750_240p" system-bitrate="396000" width="640" height="360">

    But if I try to play each of the stream in the smil file manually, it plays alright. Like for example if I do http://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:80/SVcatchup/...ylist.m3u8?DVR it plays without a problem.

    Can someone explain where this error might be coming from?
