Http Live Streaming for iPhone and why we use .m3u8 file

I have done all that from This
I have also made .ts and m3u8 file. In local server and live server i can play mp4 file like

 <video width="320" height="240" controls="controls" autoplay="autoplay">
 <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" />

But i have problem with playing .m3u8 file

  • Allow only access to camera device in HTML5
  • Iphone localStorage “QUOTA_EXCEEDED_ERR” issue
  • Can a website (HTML5,JavaScript) access a mobile device's (android/iPhone) contact list, SDCard files
  • HTTP LIve Streaming
  • How can I autoplay media in iOS >= 4.2.1 Mobile Safari?
  • h.264 video won't play on iOS
  •  <video width="320" height="240" controls="controls" autoplay="autoplay">
     <source src="movie.m3u8" type="video/m3u8" />

    My mediafilesegmenter created two .ts file and one .m3u8 . My m3u8 file is

     #EXT-X-BYTERANGE:7332@36096   and so on....

    So is there any problem in mime.types because i wrote all the confusions in mime.types see like –

     application/x-mpegURL                          m3u8
     video/MP2T                                     ts
     AddType appliction/x-mpegURL                   m3u8
     AddType video/MP2T                             ts
     #application/x-mpegURL                          m3u8
     #video/MP2T                                     ts
     #AddType application/x-mpegURL                   m3u8
     #AddType video/MP2T                             ts
     #AddType application/x-mpegURL.m3u8
     #AddType video/MP2T.ts
     AddType application/x-mpegURL.m3u8
     AddType video/MP2T.ts

    I can’t play .m3u8 file in VLC and got that error Link

    As long as your conf is

    AddType application/x-mpegURL .m3u8
    AddType video/MP2T .ts

    it should work for apache. I’m not sure if it’s your .ts or .m3u8 problem, so I suggest the following:

    • Download example .ts and .m3u8 file from Apple and test them on your server
    • check if there is empty lines in the index file, as this question

    The video tag source type video/m3u8 is not valid on the iOS platform. I suggest you simply omit declaring the source attribute, which is not required.

    If you really want to specify the source type, i.e. to allow non-compatible clients to select another source, I have found that audio/x-mpegurl works.

    The m3u8 you’re using was generated for seeking only. See EXT-X-I-FRAMES-ONLY as described here:
