HLS + no audio = fail
I wonder if the HLS spec stipulates there must be audio in the stream?
I have found that when I encode ( with Zencoder ) HLS from a source file that has no audio track, then I can play the m3u8 in JW Player but not on Chromecast, the wheel just spins.
Took me ages to work out it is definitely the fact the source file had no audio. Same HLS encodes from mp4 with audio cast fine on Chromecast.
Not sure if this would be the JW receiver app bug or a limitation of Chromecast itself?
