HLS video not running in HTML5

HLS video not running in HTML5
September 01, 2021 03:03AM
I am using NGINX RTMP HLS with OBS Studio

When I am starting live stream, on my server, in mnt/hls folder, .ts and test.m3u8 files are getting created. But when I am trying too play that stream in html5 with hls.js, No video is visible. (Blank Video Screen shown)

Tested on https://castr.io/hlsplayer/? but, Network Error While Downloading is seen

Tried adding .htaccess in server root and in hls folder with Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"

My nginx.conf file is as follows :

user www-data;
worker_processes auto;
pid /run/nginx.pid;
include /etc/nginx/modules-enabled/50-mod-http-geoip.conf;
include /etc/nginx/modules-enabled/50-mod-http-inage-filter.conf;

HTML code:

<script src="js/hls-dist/hls.js"></script> (File Exist..tested..)

<video height="300" id="video-my" style="width:80%;" controls></video>

var video = document.getElementById('video-my');
if (Hls.isSupported()) {
var hls = new Hls({
debug: true,
hls.on(Hls.Events.MEDIA_ATTACHED, function () {
video.muted = true;
// hls.js is not supported on platforms that do not have Media Source Extensions (MSE) enabled.
// When the browser has built-in HLS support (check using `canPlayType`), we can provide an HLS manifest (i.e. .m3u8 URL) directly to the video element throught the `src` property.
// This is using the built-in support of the plain video element, without using hls.js.
else if (video.canPlayType('application/vnd.apple.mpegurl')) {
video.src = 'https://myserver/hls/test.m3u8';
video.addEventListener('canplay', function () {
// });

I tried changing urls
