The problem is the app doen't undestand that you try to play hls-streams. It always defines streams type by m3u8 extension but as you use redirection from php, the app doesn't "see" this extension in the link.
You could directly define stream type in m3u playlist using mime-type attribute:

Code: Select all

#EXTINF:-1 mime-type="application/vnd.apple.mpegurl", Some HLS Channel

It works for old Samsung models but I'm not sure if it works for Tizen.
