Pulling an HLS Stream


Can I pull from an HLS stream to Red5 Pro?



Using a player like VideoJS, set the tech order to prefer HTML5 over Flash and then ensure that you're using the appropriate URL for the stream.

An example URL pattern would look something like this:


Note that it ends in .m3u8, has the right port and uses the context and app names.

For more information please see our documentation page.

We are currently working on a feature for a web SDK that will be much more robust and allows users to determine their stream preferences (WebRTC, RTMP, HLS).  That will be coming out in the future.
