Flash Media Server 4.5 Delivers to iPad & iPhone, with DRM enhancements

Flash Media Server 4.5 Delivers to iPad & iPhone, with DRM enhancements | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

New version of Flash Media Server offers expanded, dynamic protocol support, including HTTP Live Streaming to iDevices, as well as DRM enhancements.

 

FMS 4.5's primary intent is to leave the heavy lifting of choosing which protocol to deliver in (RTMP, HTTP Dynamic Streaming, HLS, etc) to the server. FMS 4.5 can generate real-time repackaging of an mp4 file for both HTTP Dynamic Streaming and HLS, including automated segmentation of mp4 files into the specific fragmented mp4 (fMP4) segmentation required by various Android, iOS and other mobile devices.

 

In addition to single stream repackaging, FMS 4.5 will also automatically create multiple bitrate segmentations, for adaptive streaming, as well as manifest files in Apple's m3u8 format. Instead of the previous manual process of rewrapping, segmentation creation, and manifest files, FMS 4.5 promises the ability to automate these basic processes.

 

With a nod to digital rights management, FMS 4.5 will also include DRM based on the Flash Access DRM scheme. Rather than requiring a broadcaster to buy a full-blown Flash Access 3.0 server, however, there will be a limited version of Flash Access baked into FMS 4.5 to cover RMTPe (encrypted) and segment-level DRM (a key feature of fMP4, which separates the header information from each fragment). Adobe claims it is also enhancing DRM to cover iOS devices to a limited degree--a claim we'll explore when we get a chance to review Flash Access 3.0 and FMS 4.5 , as HLS is based on MPEG-2 Transport Stream, which has no inherent capacity for DRM within each packet.

 

RTMFP will be available on the FMIS, a change from Adobe's previous scenario of only allowing RTMFP on the Enterprise Server version.

This document defines how to use Matroska/WebM with the MPEG DASH adaptive streaming system defined in ISO-IEC_23001-6.

 

Excerpts :

- A Media Segment in DASH corresponds to one or more Cluster in Matroska.

- The Initialization Segment in DASH corresponds to the concatenation of the EBML header, Segment header, Segment Information and Tracks sections in Matroska. Files usually have these data at the front. Other level1 elements and some padding may occur in the Initialization Segment as well, except for Clusters and Cues.

- The Index Segment in DASH corresponds to the Cues in Matroska.

- A Sub-Index Media Segment in DASH corresponds to one or more Cluster preceded by a Cues that cover only these Clusters. It may also contain a SeekHead at the front with all the level1 elements found in that Sub-Index Media Segment. Cues and SeekHead are optional.

HTTP Dynamic Streaming – Part 2: Late-Binding Audio Using OSMF

HTTP Dynamic Streaming – Part 2: Late-Binding Audio Using OSMF | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Part 1 of this series discussed HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) at a fairly high level. The next few editions in the series will explore some of the more powerful features that make using this protocol advantageous. Multi-bitrate stream switching and file encryption are two important features that we’ll cover in the very near future, as they’re very big reasons to stream over any protocol. However, in this article I’d like to discuss a brand new feature of the Open Source Media Framework (OSMF) known as “late-binding audio”.

 

Late-binding audio refers to the ability to stream videos with multiple associated audio tracks. This makes it possible to play an alternative audio track on the client-side using the same video file. There’s no need to encode, store, and deliver separate video + audio assets for each version you would like to provide. Say for example that you would like to provide video content with audio translated into multiple languages. Instead of creating separate video + audio files for each language, you instead encode the video only once, and include the alternate audio-only tracks along with the it. This represents a huge savings in time, storage, and bandwith that anyone making the switch to HTTP Dynamic Streaming can take advantage of.
