The LEADTOOLS Media Streaming Server SDK includes tools to stream the Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) format
.NET (C# & VB) and C/C++ developers. With only a few lines of code and configuration
modifications, a full-featured HLS server can be created to enable audio/video multimedia
playback natively on Apple platforms and devices, or through Flash and QuickTime plug-ins
on non-Apple platforms.
Apple HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) is a proprietary streaming protocol for delivering live and
on-demand content over regular HTTP connections and is part of QuickTime, Safari, macOS, and
iOS. HLS works by breaking up streams and video assets into several small MPEG-2 Transport
Stream files with various bit rates and index files that serve as playlists for the content.
With Apple HLS, the client is responsible for requesting the appropriate playlist based on the
current network conditions and client hardware.

Clients have high expectations for video streaming playback, and the responsibility of a positive user experience is almost completely in the server's court. Even in the case of a poor or fluctuating connection, clients expect to have continuous playback without stuttering or long buffering pauses. Furthermore, viewers expect to watch the same video on all of their devices. This is no small order for content providers. Thankfully, developers and server administrators can use the LEADTOOLS Media Streaming Server SDK to quickly and easily build professional audio/video multimedia streaming applications for playback on any device at a fraction of the cost of other proprietary methods.
