Apple hls played file tracking form smil file

hi i am using wowza streaming engine 4 , to stream smil file

i am able to trace events when file play on flash,

and gether informantions like , which file play , time etc,

in onConnect() event,

precisely i want to get which file is played from my smil file.

but in case of apple hls streaming when i try to get file name in onHTTPSessionDestroy() method , eg.

 public void onHTTPSessionDestroy(IHTTPStreamerSession httpSession) {
    			String streamName = httpSession.getStreamName();

i only get the name of smil file , not the actual file played .

is it possible to get the played file info in wowza hls steaming

Hello there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

There are new API’s which may accommodate this request:

 public void onHTTPStreamerRequest(IHTTPStreamerSession httpSession, IHTTPStreamerRequestContext reqContext)

And specific to HLS:

public void onHTTPCupertinoStreamerRequest(HTTPStreamerSessionCupertino httpSession, HTTPStreamerCupertinoRequestContext reqContext)

There is also a validation event handler:

Implement the IVHostHTTPStreamerRequestValidator interface and handle the validateHTTPStreamerRequest event.

You can find more information in the ServerSideAPI guide that ships with Wowza [install-dir]/documentation/WowzaStreamingEngine_ServerSideAPI.pdf

Kind regards,


The onHTTPCupertinoStreamerRequest is not mentioned in the Server Side API documentation (yet) I found the onHTTPStreamerRequest as part of the IHTTPStreamerRequestNotify. Where do I implement this interface; as a part of a module or in the same way as the IVHostHTTPStreamerRequestValidator (see page 1840 of the API PDF)?

This has been made available by extending ModuleBase:

public void onHTTPCupertinoStreamerRequest(HTTPStreamerSessionCupertino httpSession, HTTPStreamerCupertinoRequestContext reqContext){

Sorry for any confusion or misdirection.

Kind regards,
