Yospace, a U.K. content distributor specializing in the development of multi-screen streaming, is offering a HLS player for Flash it says “allows broadcasters and content owners to reduce the number of formats it needs to encode and store, while maintaining service for the huge installed base of Flash users during the transition towards HTML5.”
The software behind the HLS Flash Player originally was developed as part of Yospace’s advertising-replacement system, which it says allows broadcasters to tailor online streaming of their linear channels to the interests of individual users.
“The functionality has now been extracted and is available as an SDK for developers to make their Flash Player HLS-stream-compatible,” Yospace explains. The new player reportedly reduces the number of formats that need to be distributed and, thus, the CDN charges without reducing the service to any consumer.
