BBC CNN live streaming through (RTMP)


I've read this - - thread and a lot of documentation pages.

I'm trying to make a live BBC and CNN streaming using service.

With this -
bc.. <!DOCTYPE html>
<script src="********.js"></script>
<div id="news_player">Loading the player...</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
file: "cnni_live",
streamer: "rtmp://",
image: "",
width: 768,
height: 432

- code I get a "No suitable players found and fallback enabled" error in Chrome JavaScript console.

I played with streamer parameter (tried rtmp://a.cdn... rtmp://b.cdn... etc). I played with file parameter (tried cnni_live, bbcworld_bh and some others found at this - - link).

Also I played with fallback: "true" and fallback: "false" options.

Unfortunately nothing works.

Could you provide an advise how to stream MSNBC streams using JW Player?

upd. I began with this code I grabbed from MSNBClive Web page:

bc.. <!DOCTYPE html>
<script src="********.js"></script>
<div id="news_player_wrapper" style="position: relative; width: 768px; height: 432px">
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
width="100%" height="100%" bgcolor="#000000"
id="news_player" name="news_player" tabstop="0">
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="false" />
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
<param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
<param name="flashvars"

It works but I cannot get any controls over the player (neither no onReady, onPlay, onPaused, etc callbacks, no play(), stop() etc JW Player functions work).

I’m afraid we can’t help you with requests to stream videos from other companies’ website without their explicit permission.
