Akamai Plugin, JW Player 6: HDS,HLS, (LIVE and VOD)
Trying to configure JW Player 6 to use the Akamai plugin to play HD Live Streams. I have unsuccessfully attempted to play HDS url as well as a HLS Stream. We have both LIVE and VOD streams to play. We are also trying to solve the flashless Androids to play our stream as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
For live streams, we recommend an rtsp fallback – http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/28856/using-apple-hls-streaming
HLS Live on Android
For live streams, there’s not yet a good solution for playback on Android or other non-iOS mobile platforms. One workaround is to offer a native app for Android, in which HLS streams can be supported. This is beyond the scope of JW Player though. Another option, if you use the Wowza Media Server, is to offer a fallback RTSP stream for devices that don’t support HLS. For example:
<a href="rtsp://example.com/vod/mp4:myVideo.mp4">watch this stream over RTSP</a>
