Hey Martin. Just checking on status of HLS Playlist Beta. Thanks!
Sounds good. I can manage my current videos I’m producing as singletons and wait to start converting my back catalog once we have a good beta. Since playlist functionality is something my site relies quite heavily on, I’m happy to help with as much testing on my end as you can throw at me :) I’ve also had quite a bit of experience with both our own playlist solution (not HLS) and S3Bubble (HLS). I was planning on going with S3Bubble but they are not actively supporting their product – something I can’t risk in my line of work :)
Viktor & Lucia,
Thanks so much for your hard work on this. Functionally it works great. Will this still not function on Android due to tech. limitations? Just curious so I know to tell my viewers.
Only thing I’d say graphically is that at smaller viewport sizes the top padding above “Speed” gets cut down a bit and doesn’t look as nice. Screenshots attached. (Larger one has nice padding/spacing).
Good point Martin. My site has so many videos that playlist functionality helps to keep things organized well. For example, on my tune learning library, I have 150 tune based masterclasses that each have about 6 videos each. I attached a screenshot of my player currently.
I’m having more and more students complain about the current way that I deliver video as it doesn’t perform as well as YouTube, etc… This is why I’ve been pushing to get current with HLS.
I’m currently developing a guitar course that is in “beta” for new students and all my new content is being delivered in HLS. I suppose I could live with individual videos for now with that but I really need to be able to put them in playlists for course organization purposes.
But “haste makes waste” often times. How long until the HLS playlist functionality reaches beta?
Yes, that is what I meant to say – that you can’t access the slower speeds unless you go full screen. I had less a problem with the aesthetics and more with the functionality. I teach music online so this will be a feature my students will love to have. Temporary fix is to go in .25 increments but for music students, having it more granular would be great.
In the screenshot you can’t select a slower option than .7 (what is displayed).
Thanks so much for the heads up. Yes, a friend of mine developed that plugin but we both agreed that it is not worth maintaining anymore.
I was able to do as you suggested with the Plugin Organizer Plugin
I will probably be ordering Pro Support actually to make sure the workflow I’ve developed is as you would recommend going forward. Looking forward to testing the alpha version of the plugin that supports HLS Playlists.
Thanks Martin. Yes, trying to roll out a new course with hls playlists as well as migrate my old courses. Would really appreciate that.
Thanks Martin. Yes, disabling fixes the issue. It is the plugin that I’m currently using for all my video content. I’m currently transitioning to FV Player using S3 HLS. Hmmm… Is there some fairly simple workaround where I can have both play nice with each other?
disregard. It was generating the sub playlists. They were hidden as I hadn’t specified the key name properly.
Thanks Martin. That’s one thing I just discovered is that my transcode job is not generating the sub playlists. Where do you make sure that is enabled in the transcode job?
How does one setup the quality switching naming scheme for HLS?
Is there a way to change the License Acquisition URL without retranscoding? To change it, I just retranscoded with the www in my LAU.
There is not. You might add the above note in the documentation for future clarity. Thanks so much.
