Cross-browser live stream

Hello there,

We are looking to do a 360 pano live stream with krpano. Ideally, this would work across multiple browsers. Can anyone point us in the right direction?

We've tried so far:
  • RTMP streaming - Did not work. Is this only for browsers that support Flash natively? We tested with Wowza Streaming Engine (CORS enabled )
  • HLS(m3u8) - Works with Safari/iOS, but only as layer (as explained in the documentation)
  • Open Source HTML5 plugin - If this allows one to use DASH, it may the way to go. How would we go about this?

Any help would be appreciated *thumbup*


Best Regards,
Philip

Hello,
I second this question.
AFAIK, currently there's no way to correctly handle cross-browser (including mobile devices) live streaming with krpano.

Currently, even creating some Media Source Extension to handle Dash/HLS in javascript is not a complete solution as it is not yet handled by iOS devices (cf http://caniuse.com/#feat=mediasource).
Maybe using native HLS support for iOS and Android >=4.3, and MSE for all the other platform, would be a good solution? https://github.com/dailymotion/hls.js/tree/master would be a good start for example.
How krpano would handle MSE?
