Flussonic Media Server 19.11 is out.

What's New

Flussonic Media Server

  • #8419 (new) [Flussonic] The processing of incoming MPTS streams was optimized: Flussonic can now take all necessary SPTS streams out of MPTS by reading MPTS only once. To use this feature, change the source URL from 'url udp://' to 'url mpts-udp://', or 'url mpts-http://', or 'url mpts-https://'. Learn more.
  • #9340 (new) [Flussonic] The support for PlayReady DRM for Microsoft Smooth Streaming was added. Live and DVR content encryption is configured by adding to stream settings the following line: 'drm playready keyseed=[KEY SEED];'
  • #9398 (new) [Flussonic] The API allows managing logos used by the transcoder: 'get /flussonic/api/logo' returns all logos and streams where these logos are used; 'get /flussonic/api/logo/image.png' returns the image; 'put /flussonic/api/logo/image.png' adds or edits a logo; 'delete /flussonic/api/logo/image.png' deletes a logo if no streams are using it.
  • #9424 (new) [Flussonic] An alternative URL for playing archives was added: http://FLUSSONIC-IP/STREAMNAME/index.m3u8?startTime=1567116000&endTime=1567116600. The format dd/mm/yyyyThh:mm:ss is also supported.
  • #9622 (new) [Flussonic] The URL for Microsoft Smooth Streaming was added to the Output tab of stream settings in the Flussonic UI and to VOD location settings (http(s)://flussonic_name:port/stream_name.isml/manifest for streaming and http(s)://flussonic_name:port/vod_location/filename.mp4.isml/manifest for VOD). Learn more about MSS for live, DVR, and VOD.
