I'd like to be able to manually extract the HDS fragments and segments from a .f4f file. I have the .f4m and .f4x as well. Once extracted, I'd like to be able to host the fragments and segments on a standard origin (web) server such as Amazon S3. Is there any way to do this? If not, does Adobe have any plans on releasing such a tool?
Not sure, will that work.. just try it out..
1. Rename f4f file to f4v.
2. Use offline packager to package this f4v file with segment duration equal to the fragment duration of the original f4f file.
3. This must create multiple f4f files and f4x files. f4f file will have name fileNameSeg1SegX.f4f
4. Discard f4x files..
5. Rename these f4f files as per request made by the OSMF player.. For example fileNameSeg1SegX.f4f should be name fileNameSeg1FragX.f4f
We developed some software that makes it possible to distribute HDS/Http Dynamic Streaming video from a regular web server or a cloud server like S3.
You will however still need the Adobe f4fpackager software.
