Didn’t have a chance to make it to Streaming Media East this year? No problem. Our presentation on the ins and outs of ABR can be found right here on our blog.
In this how-to presentation, Streamroot explains how HTML5 players handle ABR, what these algorithms are trying to accomplish and what parameters & constraints must be taken into account when building. We use the example of the open-source hls.js and dash.js media engines to look at how different players set up the decision-making logic. We also discuss what you as a broadcaster can do to improve upon the basic algorithms, as well as some of the latest research on the subject
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn how to improve your own video player without even changing your workflow! For access to the Github links on the slides, you can find our presentation on Slideshare.
Many thanks to Streaming Media for the video footage.
