Adaptive Streaming's Primetime Challenge

Adaptive Streaming's Primetime Challenge | DRM video | Scoop.it

Video service providers have become enamored of adaptive bit rate streaming as a way to deliver video to tablets and smartphones, but not everyone believes the technology will become the primary way video is delivered to the home.

 

HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) "is not ready for primetime TV," declared Pieter Liefooghe, chief solution architect and solution line manager at the video solutions and integration organization of Alcatel-Lucent, during a panel on the topic at last week's Managing & Monetizing OTT Video event in Boston. HAS is "okay for a single-stream, OTT-style of service, but as a basis of a primetime TV service, it's a challenging proposition," he added.

 

But this doesn't mean HAS will never be suitable for primetime TV, as the shortcomings identified by Liefooghe relate to "out-of-the-box" HAS technology. He said, for example, that AlcaLu has identified some technologies and techniques that can be done on the routing platform and the content delivery network (CDN) to boost HAS performance enough to address some of its technical shortcomings. And he insisted there are ways to pare delays down to six seconds while still guaranteeing continuous playback.

 

"There's a future for HAS as the new RTP," Liefooghe concluded.

Note to publishers: Your addiction to DRM is killing you | DRM video | Scoop.it
Book publishers argue that Amazon is a vicious monopoly that has too much power over them and their content. But they need to realize they gave Amazon much of that power themselves when they agreed to shackle all of their books in DRM chains.

UltraViolet Gets Two Lifelines | DRM video | Scoop.it

A panel at this week’s CES show in Las Vegas yielded two pieces of positive news for the DECE/UltraViolet standard, after a launch several months ago with Warner Bros. and its Flixster subsidiary that could charitably be called “premature.” Of the two news items, one is a nice to have, but the other is a game-changer.

HbbTV improved adaptive streaming

HbbTV improved adaptive streaming | DRM video | Scoop.it

The HbbTV (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV) consortium has announced the publication of version 1.5 of its hybrid TV specification. Building on existing standards and web technologies, the HbbTV specification provides the features and functionality required to deliver feature rich broadcast and internet TV services.

 

Version 1.5 of the HbbTV specification notably introduces support for HTTP adaptive streaming based on the recently published MPEG-DASH specification, improving the perceived quality of video presentation on busy or slow Internet connections. It also enables content providers to protect DASH delivered content with potentially multiple DRM technologies based on the MPEG CENC specification, improving efficiency in markets where more than one DRM technology will be used. Version 1.5 significantly enhances access to broadcast TV schedule information, enabling operators to produce full seven-day electronic programme guides as HbbTV applications that can be deployed across all HbbTV receivers to provide a consistent user experience. The latest advances are based on activity within the HD Forum in France as part of the development of the TNT 2.0 specification

OSMF : Customizing HTTP Dynamic Streaming Algorithm

OSMF : Customizing HTTP Dynamic Streaming Algorithm | DRM video | Scoop.it

For most players, simply enabling OSMF's default Dynamic Streaming is sufficient. For some players, customizing the HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) adaptive bitrate algorithm may be desired, but note that this is an advanced task.

Below is a representation of the customizable areas of the adaptive bitrate algorithm. The rest of this article describes the various levels of customization, in order of complexity, starting with simple parameter customization and ending with the complete replacement of the adaptive bitrate algorithm.

Encrypted Media Extensions for HTML5 by Google, Microsoft and Netflix

Encrypted Media Extensions for HTML5 by Google, Microsoft and Netflix | DRM video | Scoop.it

This proposal extends HTMLMediaElement to enable playback of protected content. The proposed API supports use cases ranging from simple clear key decryption to high value video (given an appropriate user agent implementation). License/key exchange is controlled by the application, facilitating the development of robust playback applications supporting a range of content decryption and protection technologies. No "DRM" is added to the HTML5 specification, and only simple clear key decryption is required as a common baseline.

Google ratchets up VP8 video quality--but so do video rivals | DRM video | Scoop.it

Google has released "Duclair," the new version 1.0.0 of its VP8 technology that the company says does a better job encoding video and faster job decoding it.

 

And it's a good thing, too, because VP8 is taking on not only the incumbent H.264, but also a sequel called High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) from the same group that's well under development.

HTML5 is the future of video. Probably. Or if not HTML5, its successors. It seems that the whole web has rallied behind the desire to get rid of third-party plugins - especially closed plugins like Flash. And so every major new web browser now supports native video playback via a tag.
