A ts video file won't play

Hi guys! I need to implement a functionality of streaming a live http video on blackberry devices. I've made a basic functionality, which parses an index file (m3u8) and gets URLs of video chunks, but these chunks won't play on blackberry, even though documentation says the codecs are supported proof Our video streaming server is wowza, video codec is h264, audio codec is aac. Chunks are being delivering to the phone in ts format meaning without any containers, but blackberry cannot play these videos. There is no problem with playing an mp4 video files though. I know that when it comes to streaming video everyone uses rtsp protocol and doesn't have any problems, but unfortunately it's not an option in my case - the requirements are to make it play through live http protocol no matter what. Could anyone please suggest any ways to resolve the problem or at least to convince me it's not possible to implement on blackberry? Any help will be appreciated!

Maybe the problem is with video format itself? I mean there is no ts format in listed supported format types. Can it be the problem?
