Unable to load videos using f4m file in flash player

May 24, 2012 3:00 AM

Hi All,

I have developed a flash video player based on osmf, and using the FMS 4.5 to stream the videos. The FMS is installed on a separate machine, and we are accessing it from different clients.

I am able to stream the flv, mp4 and f4v formats. But when trying to play the f4m file in the player then getting error MediaPlayerState.PLAYBACK_ERROR. The path given is: '''',

The manifest file:

<manifest xmlns="">

<id>Dynamic RTMP Streaming</id>




<media url="mp4:Waterfall_500.f4v" bitrate="500"/>

<media url="mp4:Waterfall_1000.f4v" bitrate="1000"/>

<media url="mp4:Waterfall_1500.f4v" bitrate="1500"/>


I am able to play this manifest file by giving the path as '' in the below apps :

1) The sample video player provided with FMS.


Please help me out to resolve this issue or guide me if I am missing anything.

    Please make sure that:


         1. You are able to access the f4m from the browser of that same client machine.

         2. Crossdomain.xml is present in webroot.

         3. The 3 f4v files are present in the vod folder.

    It seems everything is working well on the server side.Could be a player issue.

    What version of OSMF did you use?
