    maximum 30 minutes with HLS-VOD to iOS device

    jpadamslux

      Hi

      I'm having a problem with Flash Media Streaming Server 4.5

       

      When playing a movieclip which is longer than 30 minutes, it plays well if I stream it to a flash-client but when I use hls-vod to send it to an Apple device, the player says that the file is exactly 30 minutes long.

       

      The license shouldn't be the problem since I could stream to 500 flash-clients at the same time a few weeks ago.

      The OS is CentOS 5.5

       

      Any ideas??

          You need to check the license configuration for hls vod.

           

          Check if in your httpd.conf (apache configuration file), you have location tag for hls-vod, something like this

           

          <Location /hls-vod>

              HLSHttpStreamingEnabled true

              HLSMediaFileDuration 8000

              HttpStreamingContentPath "../webroot/vod"

              HLSFmsDirPath ".."

              Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks

          </Location>

           

          and there HLSFMSDirPath points to the FMS's licenses folder location.

           

          For example, if you have FMS licenses folder at C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flash Media Server 4.5\licenses

           

          Then HLSFMSDirPath must be set to "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flash Media Server 4.5\" .. It may be relative path as it comes in default apache installation with FMS.

           

          Restart server after that..

          Thanks

            Thanks for your suggestion.

             

            The problem was that I used an absolute path in HttpStreamingContentPath and not a relative.

             

            At least in CentOS that caused the problem.
