HLS Video/Playlist URL
I had a question about using HLS when combining both JW platform and player.
Because of technical/business limitations with our client, we are unable to use the platform embed code to create players in some places, and are instead creating them using the player JS API. We would like these to work the same as the players generated via embed codes. Looking at the source generated by the embed code, it appears that the player is created with a "playlist" option pointing to a URL, in the following format:
This URL returns a feed with all the necessary information/file URLs for HLS streaming. It seems like we could use this same playlist URL when generating our own players, but I didn't see it anywhere on the API reference, so I am unsure if that is a stable/safe API call to rely on.
Is this a solution that would work for us, or is there a better way to take advantage of JW platform's HLS streaming ability through manually created players?
