System2: Centos 6.6 / Mistserver / Nimble etc (tested demo streams this
works fine, no issues what so ever, i add it to the built in test or
even any hls/hds player it works fine)
Scenario: I have finally installed kaltura without issue and its
working fine, i have also setup another server with cdn to deliver all
sorts of out puts. I want to add these links to kaltura and get the
player to support this live link and get stats from it, Also on a
schedule it plays videos uploaded!
Problem: when i add the url of the hls it dont load, the kaltural
player keeps looking and nothing! what i did was goto Uploads >>
Live Stream Entry > Sleeted Manual Stream URL’S from drop down, then
added the url (http://184.108.40.206:8080/hls/live/index.m3u8) but they player keeps looping, how do i get this started!
You can only play HLS is you have a CDN that supports that protocol or by using the Kaltura vod-nginx-module [https://github.com/kaltura/nginx-vod-module] included in Kaltura CE in the kaltura-nginx package. I am not sure what 220.127.116.11 is exactly… what machine is that?
That’s a fake ip! I have a cdn and it does support HLS RTMP and Dash but does not play on kaltura player but if I put it to any other player that has HLS supprt it works for example http://flashls.org any of the sample players plays the HLS i put from my cdn
why do you need wowza when a cnd is providing the stream, all kaltura has to do is play the stream like any other live stream, i am not expecting kaltura to provide the stream just play the provided stream live is play other live stream.
and frankly why does it have a manual live stream like if you need to do all these chagers? whats the poit if having a place to add the url if it dont simply work!? is it just for show? as much as i appriciate your help and response, simply tell me, i wont waste anymore of my time!
@imran_sheriff - Kaltura CE can be used for various workflows including VOD (its specialty) and Live (rather new workflow). In Live, Kaltura CE relies on either having a Streaming Server integrated with it (that’s the media-server project mentioned, Wowza is currently best integrated) or by manually providing URLs to valid HDS or HLS streams (the “Manual Live Stream” options).
To effectively help you resolve your issue, please clarify your desired workflow: -
You have your own Live Stream URL for both HLS and HDS, and you’re trying to use Kaltura player to play your live stream. You don’t want to use Kaltura to provision the live stream for you, just play it through the Kaltura player.
