Why Am I Getting a Green Flash on the iPhone and Other iOS devices?

If you see a green flash on your iPhone and other iOS devices, this probably means you are broadcasting with an h.264 profile setting that is not supported by your device. 

It could also mean that your encoder profile setting is not compatible. To fix this issue, make sure that your encoder’s h.264 profile is set to Baseline.

There is not one single solution for this since the process for changing this setting is different for each encoder.
