WOWza load balancer

Does JW player support the wowza load balanacer 302 redirects for HLS? We are currently using version 6 of the player and we need to scale our servers. We are looking at possibly adding the wowza software load balance or adding a hardware solution. Has any one had experience with either of these configurations.

Hi, Josh.

JW Player does not support 302 redirects on the M3U8 manifest/playlist files, since the Adobe Flash player does not support the combination of crossdomain loading and redirects. We advise to instead use DNS load-balancing or serve up a dynamic M3U8 manifest, containing direct links to the M3U8 playlists on the target servers.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
