Here are my hls settings:

####HLS#####
hls_enabled=true
hls_auto_start=true
hls_list_size=3
hls_abr_enabled=true
hls_preloader_enabled=false
hls_store_segment_in_memory=true
hls_time=3


My URL looks like this:
http://<address>:8082/<streamName>/<streamName>.m3u8

In chrome I get :
<server> didnt send any data
ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

In safari I get :
Safari cant open page because server unexpectedly dropped connection

Thanks!

Please note. HLS ABR works for CDN configuration only.
You have to setup CDN Transcoder node that will slice HLS ABR frames.

Try to remove ABR setting. Then remove other settings one by one.

We tested demo server with all settings by default:

Streamer

HLS Player

Works properly in Safari browser, iOS 14.2.

We will also check your configuration (excluding HLS ABR) and try to reproduce issue.

We confirm that the following parameter
Code:
hls_abr_enabled=true
should be used on Edge server in CDN only. The CDN in its turn mest consist of at lease one Origin, one Transcoder and one Edge.
HLS ABR does not work on standalone server.
Please remove the parameter from configuration and check.
