Multi Bitrate Streaming with SMIL

HDW Player is still trying to better the Examples section. Mail your ideas to [email protected]

Overview

SMIL files are used by some CDN networks, for example by Highwinds, as an additional layer to provide load balancing. HDW Player will first request a SMIL file from the CDN and then the player is redirected to an appropriate edge server depending on the location from where the user is. The SMIL file contains the location information for the media file residing in one of the edge servers the CDN has.

Required Properties

type - highwinds
video - Path of the SMIL file
