I tested the stream on an ipad 1, ipad 3 and iphone 5.

HLS seems to be aimed at IOS devices and Safari, I don't think any other browser supports it out of the box.
It also works with VLC, on Linux and on Windows 8, in that case the webserver is not needed, vlc can be pointed directly at the m3u8 index file.

Hi Hombibi,

You gave an HTML5 snippet for browser HLS playback.
What browser did you test this on?
As far as I know only Safari can play back on a Mac only.
i.e. beside iPhone/Pad.
Any other browser this was tested on?
