I am looking for help for streaming to the Roku. I've got streaming to iPhone through Wowza going fine, both live and on-demand, but when I go to pull the exact same URL through the XML on the Roku, buffer bars come up for a split-second then go back to the previous page. When I look at the Wowza server as the stream is starting to get pulled it is showing that it is starting to create the stream only, then nothing like when I connect via iphone, where Wowza will create the stream and then return the server comment mediareaderh264cupertino.handlepacket whilst streaming the media to the iphone. While connected to telnet I get " an unexpected problem (but not server timeout or http error) has been detected. | index = -3" and also "video request failure: -3 0 ". I'm not sure what I am doing wrong here but below is what I do know:
inet connection 30mbps (tx) 10mbps (rx) port 1935 is open Roku firmware is update 2.7 built 857 media server = Wowza 2.1.2 Can stream live from quicktime broadcaster to iphone through wowza can stream vod through wowza to iphone no streaming to roku live or on demand through wowza i've reset the roku multiple times Can direct link to video files on server for roku to play Video files are both mp4 and mov no clue what smil is or how to use it :/
Anyone have any clue? I can reciprocate $$ to anyone that can help bring this to fruition.
In my experiences with the Roku, that is always related to some kind of minimum bandwidth required for video playback. I would suggest you turn on bandwidth debugging, lower the minimum bandwidth as already described on these forums, and while testing you should try to playback your stream multiple times in quick succession.
@retrotom - Sounds interesting, I'm going to look at that right now @TheEndless - I checked that and it looks to be correct, from QuickTime Broadcaster it's encoding mpeg-4 and using aac-lc 80-bits/s | 48khz | 16 bit | mono
