Streaming video through DO Spaces causes playback errors

Hi Guys,

It’s my first time to use Digital Ocean with Spaces Integration, and I am encountering some issues while streaming the videos from Spaces.

Basically the setup is just that I upload videos to our Spaces Folder and then just call the video url from spaces to stream on a HTML 5 Player.

But after a few minutes of streaming i get an error on Google Chrome saying that

PIPELINE_ERROR_DECODE: Failed to send audio packet for decoding

I checked online for this issue and they say that it’s the video encoding and it’s not compatible with Browser.

But it can’t be, it’s because I asked a friend who has S3 bucket and asked him to upload the converted videos there to test the streaming, and everything works well. I never encountered the playback error again.

I am not sure what am I doing wrong, because he just uploaded the videos on S3 and it just works, am i missing anything?

Thanks in advance for any advice or help guys!
