Problem when playing the hls video streaming on Android device.

Hi. I'm trying to embed HLS video streaming on our web site by jw-player.

Following code is what I put to our web site.

aspectratio: '16:9',
width: '100%',
image: 'location of video image',
sources: [
{file: "rtmp://[wowza-IP]:1935/vod/mp4:video.mp4"},
{file: "http://[wowza-IP]:1935/vod/mp4:video.mp4/playlist.m3u8"}],
androidhls: true,
fallback: true

Above code works for PC (windows, chrome) and iPhone, but not for my Android web browser (default browser of Galaxy Note 4).

When I touch the play button, there is no response. If I touch the play button in multiple times, the error message 'FILE could not be played' is shown up.

I heard that the note 4 support HLS streaming.

How can I solve the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, there.

You are correct – HLS should be playable in Chrome for Android, as long as the Android device is running Android 4.2, or higher. Can you please give me a link to a page where you have the affected player installed?
