Being new to media streaming set up and configurations, I was hoping someone here might be able to clarify a few things for me while I go thru this process.
My company has purchased the "Wowza Streaming Engine Perpetual Bundle Unlimited Edition License — 1 Year Maintenance & Support", along with the JW Player.
The plan is to set up a streaming media server with JW Player integration. I have been testing the provided MPEG-DASH player that comes with Wowza and have run into a snag. It seems that MPEG-DASH does not play nice with Windows 7 and IE 11. I have had success getting the MPEG-DASH player test working with Chrome, but not IE 11.
From what I read, IE 11 works ok with newer versions of Windows, 8.1 and 10. Our customers have not yet migrated off of Windows 7 yet.
I have read that IE 11 does not have Media Source Extensions (MSE) that work with Windows 7 and I found on Microsoft's website it says: ""Important This feature is not supported in IE11 on Windows 7."" Link here --> https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...(v=vs.85).aspx
So am I hitting a brick wall or is this going to be possible to stream MPEG-DASH using JW Player to desktops running Windows 7 with IE 11 as the only web browser available to the end users?
Any help is much appreciated!!
