Flussonic Media Server documentation

URL changes in 4.7.0

We have refactored HTTP URLs in Flussonic to make them unified and simple to understand.

Here we give an explanation to what we want to achieve and how can it affect your system.

New Flussonic HTTP URL structure is unified and consists of following details:

Name (Track specification) (Media request) (Extension)

What it means?

  • Name is your file or stream name
  • Track specification is a modifier that you can use to change from default behaviour to some specific video or audio tracks
  • Media request is what you can to get from your content
  • Extension is a protocol that you want to use.

Examples:

  • HLS index playlist: /ort/index.m3u8
  • HLS archive playlist (file-like access): /ort/archive-1508403742-3600.m3u8
  • MP4 export: /ort/archive-1508403742-3600.mp4
  • DASH archive playlist (file-like access): /ort/archive-1508403742-3600.mpd

Now this is looks very similar.

To achieve this we had to change urls from what have you used before.

Don't worry, we will try to maintain backward compatibility for a reasonable amount of time, but we encourage you to move forward.
