HLS streaming for desktop browsers (Flash), .m3u8 cross-domain error
We just purchased a Premium license and I'm in the process of migrating all of our streaming pages to the JW Player. The topic page states that "the Premium and Enterprise editions support HLS playback for desktop browsers (using Flash)." I would like to set up pages to adaptively stream our videos (1000+ streams) which were Flash only, single bit rate streams on our previous pages. If I can get this to work this would make a huge difference in terms of efficiency and storage space (3000+ video files vs. 6000+ files).
I want HLS streaming for both Flash and iOS devices in order to avoid having 6 files for each video stream (high, mid, low bandwidth for rtmp, same for Apache http streaming). Would this be possible using an .m3u8 manifest file loaded via an RSS feed? I have a test page that works with six files contained both a .smil manifest file (3 different bandwidths for Flash) and an .m3u8 file (same for HLS), but when I try it with only .m3u8 manifests on the Desktop I'm getting a cross-doman error (cannot load .m3u8: cross domain access denied).
First Question: Can this be done, and if so, what is the proper way to do this?
This is the page: http://www.librarymedia.net/Videogallery/Recent-test.html
This is what part of the rss file looks like (first three videos do not have the .smil manifests in the RSS):
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:jwplayer="http://rss.jwpcdn.com/">
<title>Board of Education Meeting</title>
<description>July 22, 2014</description>
<jwplayer:source file="Manifests/BOE-07222014.m3u8" />
<title>Class of 2014 Graduation</title>
<description>June 19, 2014</description>
<jwplayer:source file="Manifests/Graduation-06192014.m3u8" />
<jwplayer:track file="Chapters/Graduation-06192014.vtt" kind="chapters" />
I have cross-domain files on both the streaming server and the server hosting the player/page. The manifest files are on the same server as the player and I've tried to load them from the streaming and web servers. Get the same error regardless of where the .m3u8 manifest file is served from.
1. Wide open cross-domain file on both severs:
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<allow-access-from domain="*" />
Again, this is the page: http://www.librarymedia.net/Videogallery/Recent-test.html Only the first 3 have the single .m3u8 manifests (cross-domain error). The others do have a .smil source so they work.
Thanks for the advice help.
