    HLS Streaming does not work with Wowza Streaming Server

    user458090
      Hello,

      We have just run into an issue using the MediaPlayer with Wowza Streaming Server (vanilla) and streaming via HLS. We started with a sample that is a part of the "Ensamble" suite, but it does not seem to work with Wowza (no video or audio). It seemed to work with Adobe Flash Media Server and a bunch of other sample streams I found on the internet. From what I can tell/guess, one of the things that may be throwing the player off is the use of the "?wowzasessionid." Not sure why the player would care about it, but seems to be different from other generated playlists that have playlist items ending with .ts. I tried playing the same url/stream via Wowza on the iPad and Quicktime(MacOS) without any issues.

      Any help in debugging/fixing this is greatly appreciated.


      My configuration: Java 1.7.0_09 with JavaFX 2.2.3, Win 7x64, MacOS 10.7, Wowza 3.0.5-3.1.2

      I also logged this issue here: http://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-25841

      Below is the sample output playlist from Wowza:
