Hi!

I want to make an app that will play a live streaming video.I have a code for a player that plays whenever something is being broadcasted.
I put this code inside a html file , uploaded it to a server and then I loaded it into a twebbrowser.
It worked fine but I noticed that when I hit play iphone opens up a video player.
Then I thought that it might have a way to load this live streaming video straight into this video player instead of having to load a html page into a webbrowser. I just don't know how to do it.

Can anyone please help me?

thank you

I am using RAD Studio XE8

as far as i tested and did research, you cant stream video nor sound files via your app

but there is another way, you always can "execute" the mp4 file using your default video player on your phone.. dont remember the commands, but im sure will find it.

thank you very much! I don't want to stream a video.The video is being broadcasted through a server and I want my app to show this video on a player.
