no.

all i see is "Flowplayer with ffserver".
it tries to load something but never gets there (the browser's spinner is active until it times out after 5min or so).

the page source:
Code:
<html><head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
	<script type="text/javascript" src="flowplayer-3.2.4.min.js"></script>
	<title>Minimal Flowplayer setup</title>
</head>
<body>
	<div id="page">
		<h1>Flowplayer with ffserver</h1>
		<br>
		<div data-aspect-ratio="47:25" class="flowplayer no-volume">
   <video autoplay>
      <source type="video/webm"
              src="//198.91.92.112:8090/test.webm">
      </video>
</div>
		<br>
		<script>
			flowplayer("player", "flowplayer-3.2.5.swf");
		</script>	
</body>
</html>
</div>
trying to access the video source directly does the same. i.e., i cannot open 198.91.92.112:8090/test.webm

i suspect this has nothing to do with video streaming, but with permissions or port forwarding or firewall settings.
once you get THAT solved, why don't you just use html5? https://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_video.asp

yeah the stream was down because my broadband went up and down like a yoyo during the night, I can only put that down to my isp doing maintenance. Typical. This also caused ffserver to give up. The previous url should be working now. Following your advice I also knocked up a html5 page as per the link you gave:
http://198.91.92.112/stream/flowplayer/index3a.html? The video worked fine for me. I have to do some extra work to ensure the stream stays up but I'll have to do that later.
ps: where abouts in the world are you?

might want to consider adding control buttons to the video.

ok, I did a search on google but could find hardly anything regarding Fennec f-droid. Does fennec refer to a custom OS? I see now I need a phone with android 4 or above. My samsung is only on 2.3 so its no wonder I can't see video playing on it. I can play files on it but not a live stream. As soon as I get some funds I'll have to get a newer phone. Thankyou for your help throughout this thread.

no, it's a rebranded firefox from f-droid.
strangely, i can't find it myself now, but it's on gitlab.
i guess it's about the same as firefox for android, or icecat mobile.
the os is rooted plain android.
