Adobe Primetime 1.2 Adds Native HLS Support to Flash Player for Desktop

We are excited to show­case a new fea­ture of Adobe Prime­time: Native HLS sup­port in Adobe Flash Player for desk­top.

What does native HLS sup­port mean? HLS play­back in Adobe Flash Player for desk­top pro­vides best-in-class per­for­mance, with robust, Hol­ly­wood stu­dio-man­dated DRM sup­port (Adobe Prime­time DRM + PHLS), and AES-128 clear key pro­tec­tion for con­tent pro­tec­tion com­pat­i­bil­ity.

The Adobe Prime­time Player SDK with HLS sup­port for Adobe Flash Player on desk­tops now sup­ports VOD, live and lin­ear simul­cast use cases, with the fol­low­ing fea­tures:

  • Adobe Prime­time DRM / Adobe Access, PHLS, AES-128 clear key

  • Decryp­tion per­formed natively in Flash Player

  • Full hard­ware decod­ing and com­posit­ing

  • 608/708 and Web­VTT Closed Cap­tion­ing

  • Adjustable adap­tive stream­ing

  • 100% dynamic ad inser­tion (no dual player)

  • Inte­gra­tion with Adobe Prime­time ad deci­sion­ing or any VAST/VMAP-compatible third-party ad server

  • Sup­port for Adobe Prime­time Qual­ity-of-Expe­ri­ence (QoE) mon­i­tor­ing

Besides get­ting a best-in-class video expe­ri­ence, Adobe Prime­time now offers the abil­ity to use the same DRM-pro­tected, ad-sup­ported con­tent on every Adobe Prime­time-enabled device, includ­ing iOS, Android, Roku, Xbox and more. A sin­gle work­flow leads to lower stor­age costs, bet­ter caching effi­cien­cies, and a more eco­nom­i­cal infra­struc­ture.


Above is a demon­stra­tion of an adap­tive 10 Mbps HLS stream with Adobe Prime­time ad inser­tion, ad deci­sion­ing, DRM pro­tec­tion, and acces­si­bil­ity enabled with Web­VTT-based closed cap­tion­ing.
