    Default live streaming audio over http without playlist.m3u8?

    I have a particular legacy software that requires receiving live streaming audio with a file extension of either .aac, .mp3 or .mp4

    It works from a shoutcast server, but I really want to use Wowza instead (and, if possible, with Cloudfront...but first things first) for live http streaming.

    Is there any way to use use a URL like http://myserver.com:1935/app/stream.mp4 instead of http://myserver.com:1935/app/stream/playlist.m3u8?

    It's the m3u8 extension that's giving me the issue for this one particular app, even though the actual audio stream is AAC.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    HTTP streaming requires a playlist or manifest file to direct the player towards the playback chunks. Does your software support an RTSP or RTMP URL instead? For example:

    rtsp://myserver.com:1935/app/stream

    rtmp://myserver.com:1935/app/stream

    Best regards,
    Andrew

    Unfortunately, no.

    I can build custom http proxy for you, however you should understand that HTTP streaming involves downloading of chunklist.m3u8 and .ts files later to actually get you some video.
    If you need only high-level url to be without /playlist.m3u8 then i can help you - write me to roman@dynamicstreaming.net
