Differences in live streaming to STA SDK vs other devices

Differences in live streaming to STA SDK vs other devices

What are the differences in HLS streaming live to the STA SDK incontrast to code that might be used for other devices?

A simple app to view live HLS might look like this:

<video width="720" height="576" autoplay="true"><source type="video/mp4" src="http://server:1935/app/stream/playlist.m3u8"></source></video>

This code works well on Android and iPhones.
On the STA SDK using the sane code and streaming server; the video is not displayed.
Is there anything unique about how the STA SDK handles HLS and live streams?

This is a known issue for the SDK, we are working on a solution. The code should work on actual platforms.

Hi,
When it comes to the streaming you cannot rely on SDK, so far none SDK I have seen on mobile on Smart TV really support video streaming. This for sure needs testing on the real hardware
