Flussonic Media Server can play back video streams via various protocols. This section describes the URL addresses that you can use in players in order to play video via different protocols.



Flussonic Media Server has a special page embed.html which is intended for video insertion to a website or viewing of video via a browser. The page automatically detects a browser version to select a supported protocol. For the majority of devices for today — it's HLS.

If a stream has several audio and video tracks, Flussonic uses the first track by default (a1v1).

You can specfy which tracks Flussonic must deliver. For this, specify track numbers in the tracks parameter of the stream's URL.


  • rtsp://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME?tracks=a2v1

  • rtsp://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME?tracks=a2v1&from=1 — DVR.

  • rtsp://FLUSSONIC-IP/vod/file?tracks=a2v1 — VOD.


Selecting only one track:

  • rtsp://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME?tracks=a1 — select an audio track.

  • rtsp://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME?tracks=v1 — select a video track.

If you specify more than two tracks or make a syntax error, the default tracks will be used (a1v1).
