Publishing multi-bitrate live streams for iOS

I'm having difficulties publishing multi-bitrate live streams that can be viewed on an iPad/iPhone.


I'm running Flash Media Server 4.5, and have carefully followed Adobe's Tutorial on streaming live media (http) using hls found here: 09-52e437a812a3725dfa0-8000.html#WS0432746db30523c21e63e3d12e8340f669- 8000


After completing the above tutorial, the video can be seen just fine on my desktop computer via the flash plug-in, but it's not working in iOS...


When I go to what I believe to be the proper URL, (,  I get an error message on my iPhone and iPad saying "The operation could not be completed".


I have created two set-level manifest files (one .f4m and one .m3u8) for the live stream using the Set Level F4M/M3U8 File Generator and saved them to the WebRoot directory, but alas, no love.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!
