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.

    Does Native HLS Support extend to non-prime time based HLS streams? Can a vanilla HLS stream now be played in adobe flash player?

    For me the best function of all is still the Support for Adobe Primetime Quality-of-Experience (QoE) monitoring.
