Examining Robust HLS and HDS Video Playback with Adobe Media Server 5

Adobe Media Server 5, a core component of Adobe’s Project Primetime, helps premium content publishers deliver HD quality video across platforms, including iOS and Android devices, to the largest possible audience with a streamlined workflow. We’re revolutionizing media delivery with support for consistent, protected streaming across any Internet-connect device — tablets, smartphones, connected TVs, and desktops.

With our video solutions like Adobe Media Server 5, we’re focused on enabling an optimal online video playback experience where the consumer gets what they want – when and how they want it. Related to this topic, we’ve published a technical article for video content publishers around HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). The article examines today’s video playback architecture and server-side challenges, including back-end redundancy issues such as live-ness, where a packager advertises a stale view of live, and dropout, where a packager has gaps in its fragment list. We also provide users with a step-by-step guide to writing a basic varnish configuration script to configure a Varnish proxy for the failover solution. (Varnish Cache is a web application accelerator, occasionally referred to as a HTTP accelerator or a reverse HTTP proxy, that will significantly enhance your web performance).

  2. Thank you for that suggestions you have offered below. Something diffrent I’d really like to say will be which pc method ram needs commonly climb along with innovative developments in the technological know-how. In particular, as soon as brand new decades connected with cpu poker chips are exposed to industry, there is commonly an comparative raise in the design choices connected with the pc method ram in addition hard disk space. The reason being the software program program run through these cpu poker chips will inevitably boost throughout power to control the revolutionary engineering.
