issues with wowza on 2.9, Roku2.

Sat Oct 01, 2011 3:28 pm

Hi, I'm testing out a new wowza service from Bitgravity. I've been testing with my 3.0 boxes for the most part and everything looked good, then just switched over to my 2.9 boxes. The 2.9 is throwing a 404 error when it hits the m3u8 file:

"Unknown event: 11 msg: HTTP status 404 data: 0 indx: 0
play failed: There was an error in the HTTP response. This could mean that malformed HTTP headers or an HTTP error code was returned."

2.9 doesn't support absolute paths in the m3u8. 3.0 and up does

Ok. So if it get this right from reading the various threads:

2.9 can't handle absolute urls,

4.x can only handle full absolute with the http://

so the server needs to output the full path to each stream segment in the .m3u8

?

That, or relative paths should also work in all firmwares. Like this bitgravity stream has...

#EXTM3U
#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1,BANDWIDTH=1265260
playlist.m3u8?wowzasessionid=1096291027
#EXT-X-STREAM-INF:PROGRAM-ID=1,BANDWIDTH=64000
playlist.m3u8?wowzaaudioonly&wowzasessionid=1096291027
