HTML5 live Video Streaming Support Using Flash media live encoder
Ok here it is... I have been streaming live video with jw player and flash media live encoder and flash media server.... Now since flash is dying with android and it won't work with iPhone/ipad... I have been knocking my head on my keyboard i know nothing about html5 at all but i wanna know if there is anyone out there that can help me configure my jw player and flash media live encoder to to work with these devices.. Thanks
I have an issue using JW Player for Wordpress. As a faculty of communication in a university, we have a video website which we serve VOD videos, and sometimes Live events such as graduation ceremony and etc.
I was using Flash Media Live Encoder 3.2 and Flash Media Server 3.5 until now. And as you can guess, it's not enough now because of the fact that we also should stream to iOS devices with HTML5 support. So we got a shining new Adobe Media Server 5, using 'livepkgr' application for packaging live events and serving HTML5. It supports HTTP Dynamic Streaming and HTTP Live Streaming for iOS devices.
My problem comes into scene here. I tried and successed embedding my usual SWF as a player and changing flashvars in the embed code, and voila, it worked. However, I couldn't settle the workflow for HTML5 stream. How should I construct my URL when trying to embed live stream (not VOD files) using JW Player for Wordpress.
Thanks Ethan, now it worked with a single line of code.
Now I have two final questions/issues:
1. On iPad, sounds comes intermittently, half of it is lost. Do you think it's because my iPad is first gen. and has insufficient memory/processor to stream a healthy 96 kbps broadcast? If not, what's the problem? (My Flash Media Live Encoder settings are: Audio Format: MP3, Channels: Mono, Sample Rate: 44100, Bit Rate: 96 kbps)
2. What should be the shortcode for VOD files (for instance an MP4 file with h.264 encoding)
