    Default Need help to find out the device play stream

    Hi everybody!
    Iam using Wowza Streaming Engine 4 Monthly Edition 4.0.5 build12045 with both RTMP (for desktop) and HLS (for mobile) protocol. I have difficulty to try identifying the player is playing HLS streaming. Because some player like "VLC Player" can play HLS streaming on desktop (but I only want play HLS streaming on mobile and I was blocked most of the HLS streaming connected on desktop).
    I do not know how I can identify computer or mobile is playing the HLS streaming. Can you help me?

    Thanks so much.

    I am sorry, I had to delete my first reply because it was not accurate.

    You can see the "user agent" in the access.logs found in [install-dir]/logs/wowzastreamingengine_access.log. This will show what type of device is playing the stream.

    You can control the access to the stream with this module with ".getUserAgent()":

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for your reply!
    But some player like VLC Player can change user agent with simple way by add "http-user-agent=PS4 libhttp/1.76 (PlayStation 4)" in advanced Option, i can change to any user agent. So I cannot check the device is using HLS streaming.

    That's all I know to suggest at this time. I will look into it a bit more and try to get back to you.

    Also, maybe someone from support will jump in if there is anything else to add.

    Thank you,
