URL Syntax

The following list shows the proper URL syntax to use to stream the supported protocols to multimedia players:

Protocol

URL Syntax

Adobe Flash RTMP

rtmp://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>

 

Example:

rtmp://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4

Note: RTMP requires files to be in a subfolder. This is normally described as the application. So if you place video files in the root of the Media folder (instead of the VOD subfolder), the URL still requires a subfolder. In this case, you can use "." or "_media_" subfolder. So if sample2.mp4 was in the media folder, you can use one of these two URLs:

rtmp://192.168.1.250:6969/./sample.mp4 or rtmp://192.168.1.250:6969/_media_/sample.mp4

Adobe HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS)

http://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>/manifest.f4m

 

Example:

http://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4/manifest.f4m

Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS)

http://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>/playlist.m3u8

 

Example:

http://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4/playlist.m3u8

MPEG-DASH

http://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>/manifest.mpd

 

Example:

http://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4/manifest.mpd

Microsoft Smooth Streaming (SSF)

http://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>/manifest.mpd

 

Example:

http://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4/manifest

RTSP/RTP

rtsp://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>

 

Example:

rtsp://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4

RTSP/RTP (MPEG-2 transport)

rtsp://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>/mp2t.sdp

 

Example:

rtsp://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4/mp2t.sdp

RTSP/RTP over HTTP

rtsp://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>/qt.sdp

 

Example:

rtsp://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4/qt.sdp

 

Note: qt.sdp informs the server to adjust the B frame timestamps to avoid jerky playback in quicktime. If your video does not contain B frames, then the qt.sdp can be omitted.

HTML5 Video

http://<IP Address>:<Port>/<File Path>

 

Example:

http://192.168.1.250:6969/vod/sample.mp4
