Do you have a link to where this is set up? A direct link to an M3U8 should be able to play via Android’s native media player.

Hi Brian,

when I view this link directly with my Android device, I am hearing a slight hum (I’m assuming a live stream). Is the device you’re utilizing running Android 4.0 or higher?

I wonder if it is encoded correctly. I had the same problem with some video streams for the longest time. They worked on iOS but not Apple. Turns out they were high profile H264 and needed to be baseline. Once I figured out how to change that they worked fine. Check out this page for supported media formats on Android.
