STANAG 4609 Player .NET SDK  Version 3.3.0
HLS support.

HLS allows content deployment using ordinary web servers and content delivery networks. As it based on MPEG TS (with MPEG4 added in the recent revisions) it makes a perfect solution for STANAG VOD distribution.

The StCore SDK supports basic HLS features adding a local file (list) support.

HLS modes

There are two different scenarios:

OnDemand mode.

For Video on Demand (VOD) sessions, the available media files represent the entire duration of the presentation. The index file is static and contains a complete list of URLs to all media files created since the beginning of the presentation. This kind of session allows the client full access to the entire program. Here is the example VOD playlist:

#EXT-X-ENDLIST

The EXT-X-ENDLIST tag indicates that no more media files will be added to the playlist file.

Live Playlist mode.

For live sessions, the index file is updated by removing media URIs from the file as new media files are created and made available.

Note
The EXT-X-ENDLIST tag is not present in the Live playlist, indicating that new media files will be added to the index file as they become available.

StCore operation with HLS.

The SDK works seamlessly with HLS. All you have to do is to provide a manifest file (with extension .m3u8) instead of TS file. In addition to the standard HTTP support the StCore SDK allows local file playback (no need for the http server). The file location is relative to the manifest (index) file.
