Windows Phone support?
 
Hi!

Does livestream support viewing embedded videos (iframe) on Windows Phone?

I'm trying to view a website with an embedded video. The video image and the overlay play button loads ok, but when I click the play button, nothing happens.

See this example: http://jsbin.com/ibeqoc/9

Unfortunately, Livestreams are not supported on Windows Mobile phones.

Henry,

Thank you for your answer! It's a shame that WP is not supported :/

Could you elaborate your answer a little bit? Why isn't WP supported? Is it because of Windows Phone platform or because of the Livestream player? Do you plan to add Windows Phone support in the future?

Windows Phone is a big market for a company I'm working for. Because Livestream doesn't support WP, I have to say to my boss that it's impossible to play Livestreams from Windows Phone. Instead of just saying "no, not possible", I'd like to give him a brief explanation _why_ it's impossible, and _when_ will it be possible.

Thanks!

Br, Mikko Koski

rap1ds,

I think the main issue with Windows Mobile phones is that they do not support the proper protocols/formats used for Livestreaming. Specifically HLS and Flash.

Hi,

We could use thirdparty solution for HLS-streaming on Windows Phone.
http://www.apptelic.com/skills/index/HLSWebPlayer
http://www.3ivx.com/technology/windo...streaming.html

However, these solutions need the direct link to the stream.

How can we get the direct link to the live stream (and videos on demand) from the API using the new livestream platform?

All API documents point to the old platform. Where is the new platform API documentation?

I found out the following:
http://api.new.livestream.com/accoun...events/2054140
and
http://api.new.livestream.com/accoun...ideos/17267410

So I'm guessing it should be possible.

Unfortunately this isn't something we are able to support at this time.
