viewing our live streams on Android

There was a request from the team preparing a customized android tablet for radiosai to consider changing our embedded player to something based on html5 so that Android would play it. They suggested videojs.

But according to this stackoverflow post, it looks like videojs does not work with our Wowza server: a test page I made also did not work. Our jwplayer embed does have a html5 option, but that seems to work only on iOS devices - "Cupertino streaming".

Wowza forums recommend using RTSP for streaming to Android, and when I made a link like they suggested, that worked fine on my HTC Wildfire for recorded streams. So, perhaps the rtsp urls
(where myStream is the stream name)
is the way to go for Android.
