Key Features

MP2 and fMP4 support

Using MainConcept’s HLS SDK it is possible to create content using the widely deployed segmented MPEG-2 Transport Stream format or the recently introduced fMP4 format. The packaging SDK will ensure that file naming and folder structure conventions are being met and the files created are fully compliant with the specification.

Media and Master Playlist generation

Using the same module developers are able to create Media Playlists, which cover one quality level, and at the same time combine multiple Media Playlists into one Master Playlist (also known as M3U8 file) which is being delivered to the client. While Media Playlists contain detailed information about the media segments of one quality level Master Playlist describe the content of the media playlists and help the playback client determine available quality levels and bit rates.

Intelligent Network Monitoring


Network conditions can vary per user and over time. MainConcept’s Network Source module constantly monitors network quality and performance to enable seamless and intelligent adaptation between quality layers. In addition the user is able to override the automated selection and manually choose different quality levels for audio and video streams.
