    Default chunklist when there are no active streams

    We have one Origin and one Edge server. То origin server coming three streams. Customer access to Edge by calling the SMIL file. When the streams are active m3u8 file looks like this:

    http: // XXXX: 1935 / TestApp / _definst_ / smil: testapp.smil / chunklist_w943815551_b2000000.m3u8

    When there are no active streams m3u8 file looks the same. Once you download playlist, is taken chunklist

    If there are streams returns valid chunklist and if there are no streams is not returning chunklist

    The problem is that some clients (mostly Android) that completely stuck when is trying to get the chunklist. Is it possible to set when there is no stream, do not return any playlist, so that the player will not try to take chunklist?

    Hi vojneski,

    When the stream is not active on the origin, the edge should return a 404 when the playlist is requested. Do send us a zip copy of the conf/, logs/, SMIL files, and playlist generated from the origin and edge so that we can investigate further.

    We send you email with zip copy of the conf/, logs/, SMIL files, and playlist generated from the edge.

    Hi,

    For other users, when using a SMIL file, the Wowza software does not check if all of the sources are available when initially generating the playlist file. The SMIL file itself contains enough information to return the playlist file. Hence, when performing a curl on the SMIL file's playlist, it would return a valid HTTP response. A curl on the chunk segment in the playlist would return the 404.
