If you choose to host and encode video files on your own, then this information may prove useful.
The Brid Player supports three types of video files:
- MP4 videos using the H.264 video codec and the AAC audio codec. MP4 is of high quality and can be played in all browsers and devices. It is today's video format of choice.
- HTTP Live Streaming (also known as HLS). Input an index file that contains references of the fragmented files, saved as .m3u8
- Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH), also known as MPEG-DASH, is an adaptive bitrate streaming technique that enables high quality streaming of media content over the Internet delivered from conventional HTTP web servers. Input a valid .mpd file.
Keep in mind that the MPEG-DASH streaming format is not supported on iOS devices.
