    HLS streaming with .mov origin file.

    e0ipso

      I have a collection of .mov files (ISO Media, Apple QuickTime movie).

       

      I need to stream them to a web application using RTMP for flash supporting devices and HLS for iOS devices using HTML5 video tag.

       

      I have had no problems if I convert the files to MP4 and then use …/hls-vod/path-to-file.mp4.m3u8 but no luck with the QuickTime version.

       

      I have tried renaming the .mov file to .f4v given that this link suggests that .mov and .f4v have the same support.

       

      My questions are:

       

      1. Are .mov files only supported for RTMP streaming?
      2. Do I need to transconde my files to MP4 (or any other format) to be able to stream videos to Apple devices?
      3. If the answer to #2 is "yes", is there any free software to perform the transcoding for a CentOS EC2 based system automagically? My current option is a script that calls ffmpeg.

       

       

      Thanks for the support.
