HDS live streaming
Important: This demo is not functional because we currently cannot offer a HLS and HDS live stream combination. Your live stream could be advertising your content here! If you are a live stream provider and would like to present a HLS stream and HDS stream combination to an even wider audience, please contact Flowplayer support.
Observe how the quality of the live stream is constantly kept at the highest possible quality which the current bandwidth allows. Flowplayer has become your Web TV!
Both the Adobe F4M manifest and the HLS M3U8 file contain stream addresses in multiple bitrates. The Bwcheck for HTTP streaming plugin takes care of resolving the URLs according to currently available bitrate and the screen size. iOS has a similar builtin mechanism to process the M3U8 'playlist' which it is given via the ipadUrl property in the clip object.
Here's the complete configuration for this demo:
