Flussonic Media Server documentation

DVR and authorization

Authorization Anchor Anchor x2

If you use auth, your auth backend have to recieve the type and media_request parameters with every request. You can read about authorization on a separate page.

type parameter describes a protocol: hds, hls, rtmp, rtsp, mpegts and mp4.

media_request parameter gives a more detailed description of what has been requested.

Mappings betweed URL and media_request are in the table below.

The first column contains only endings of URL, so /STREAMNAME/index.m3u8 really stands for this URL: http://flussonic-ip/STREAMNAME/index.m3u8.
