Thread: Java API to resolve SMIL file (AMLST) - Not working for HDS and HLS

    Default Java API to resolve SMIL file (AMLST) - Not working for HDS and HLS

    Hi everyone,

    I developed a module to resolve SMIL file request, just as described in this article (

    It works pretty fine when a SMIL file is requested. By requesting the URL http://[wowza-server-url]/[application]/[app-instance]/amlst:[prefix]/medialist.smil it presents the following file:

    		<video src="video1" system-bitrate="1064000" width="1280" height="720">
    			<param name="audioBitrate" value="64000" valuetype="data"/>
    			<param name="videoBitrate" value="1000000" valuetype="data"/>
    		<video src="video1_500" system-bitrate="564000" width="1280" height="720">
    			<param name="audioBitrate" value="64000" valuetype="data"/>
    			<param name="videoBitrate" value="500000" valuetype="data"/>
    But by requesting the URL http://[wowza-server-url]/[application]/[app-instance]/amlst:[prefix]/manifest.f4m it presents the following file, with only one stream path:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <manifest xmlns="">
    	<bootstrapInfo id="bootstrap1064000" profile="named" url="playlist_b1064000_w1016359968.abst"/>
    	<media bootstrapInfoId="bootstrap1064000" width="1280" height="720" bitrate="1039" url="media_b1064000_w1016359968.abst/">
    The same thing happens when an HLS file is requested (playlist.m3u8)

    Has anyone tried to use this module?

    Do I need to apply any extra configuration to make it working for other kind of files besides SMIL files?

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Hi ciroanunciacao,

    I have the exact same problem!!! It works fine for RTMP, but HLS is completely failing ...

    I'm using Wowza Streaming Engine 4.1.2

    I can see the call passing to my IMediaStreamNameAliasProvider2 instead of going to IMediaListProvider

    The strange thing is that it is working on android/jwplayer HLS but not on iPad/jwplayer so it could be a jwplayer issue?

    Has this been taken care of? I'm still having an issue in 4.2 where the amlst request is returning a 404 for an F4M manifest request.
