#10675 closed Bug Report - General (Upstream Bug)

HTTP Live Streaming has incorrect file paths in m3u8 file.

Description

I've been unable to playback any of the livestreams from the backend using VLC. It appears that the m3u8 file is has incorrect filenames (contains a directory). VLC is attempting to playback a path with two Content directories because of this (http://backendip:port/Content/Content/GetFile....).

Testing a sample file from Apple ( http://devimages.apple.com/iphone/samples/bipbop/gear1/prog_index.m3u8 ) works in VLC. If I take one of the .ts links and construct it with a single /Content (rather than /Content/Content?) I am able to playback the file in VLC, indicating that it isn't a codec issue. Comparing the two m3u8 files (the apple sample and the one from the backend), the one the backend produces contains a directory in the filename (/Content/<Filename>).

Talking with sphery, it appears that either the full path should be in the m3u8 file (including http://server:port/) or it should be the filename only (no directory).
