MSS playback

Flussonic Media Server supports playing video via the MSS protocol. The stream is available at the URL:


Selecting tracks

Selecting tracks is useful to play video on client devices that do not support, for example, the multi-language MSS manifest.

If a stream has several audio, video, and subtitle tracks, you can specify which tracks to play. To do this, specify track numbers by adding the filter.tracks parameter to the stream URL.

  • http://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME.isml/manifest?filter.tracks=v1a1 — select the first audio and second video tracks.
  • http://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME.isml/manifest?filter.tracks=a1 — select audio only.
  • http://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME.isml/manifest?filter.tracks=v1 — select video only.
  • http://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME.isml/manifest?filter.tracks=a1t2 — select the first audio and second subtitle tracks.
  • http://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME.isml/manifest?filter.tracks=v1t1t2t3 — select the first video track and three tracks with subtitles.
