I`m trying to get working nimble advertizer, I had set my config file like this:
The returning error from the log is E: failed to get advertising rules, uri=https://adsinmind.com/ads/ads.json,
My JSON file:
Seems Advertizer is incompatible with HTTP/2.0, please try to place JSON file on web server without HTTP/2.0 enabled.
Thank you so much, it resolves the issue, now I'm getting this message
[advd] E: failed to download content, uri=https://188.8.131.52:7089/vod/bunny.mp4
I have tested the URL and the encode, both are ok, could you advise me?
There is some issue with SSL configuration - you may open your URL in a browser to see it. Please fix SSL configuration or use HTTP instead.
In addition - I see you have Nimble installed on that server. Nimble use redirect to URL with nimblesessionid which Advertizer don't support. We will add support for redirection in future releases; for a while, you should add HTTP origin application for vod (Nimble Streamer -> HTTP origin applications -> Add... -> Application name: vod) to disable sessions for it.
Hey Denis, it works perfectly, the problem was the HTTP Origin.
One more question, I`m using Icecast as incoming and HLS as outgoing is there any possibility that my video ads come with video because I´m obtaining the audio part only.
Icecast is audio-only format, and you can't change stream format from audio-only to audio+video on a fly. You can add some static picture or video in a loop to audio stream using Live transcoder as described in this article: https://blog.wmspanel.com/2017/01/bind-unsynced-video-audio-transcoder.html - in this case you would be able to mix it with video ads.
Yep, I have done it just as you described, it`s working well. Thank you so much for your help.
Any good player on the market that you recommend?
We recommend to use JW Player ( https://www.jwplayer.com/ ) and Bitmovin ( https://bitmovin.com/video-player/ ), it most powerful players, while they are not for free. If you want free open-source solution, you can use Video.js ( https://github.com/videojs/video.js ) or hls.js ( https://github.com/video-dev/hls.js )
Back again, I`m starting to think that am bothering too much.
When I test the stream inside the panel it works smoothly but when I try to use it in another player, it gets stuck trying to get the ad.
The hls.js player shows this error "Buffer Stalled Error"
This is the stream https://aimstreamer.com:30443/live/stream/playlist.m3u8.
Its something strange because it works on the wmspanel SAMPLE URL PLAYER but just there.
Looks like timestamps are reset in this stream periodically.
Does it works well with simply transmuxed source stream (Icecast to HLS) without inserting ads and adding video? Are there any errors in /var/log/nimble.log related to source stream or transcoding?
I would recommend to submit support ticket via https://wmspanel.com/help to discuss details of your issue there.
It works well with the simple transmuxed source stream, it gets stocked when trying to insert the ads.
The logs seem to be ok, doesn't show errors.
