hds bitrate selection


is it possible to make hds stream with bitrate selection or how can I accomplish this?

I need live stream with time shift (ndvr?) in three bitrates and to have possibility to manual choose stream quallity.

I have flowplayer.

Thanks for any advice, i don’t know where to start.


A good place to start is How to use Flowplayer with Wowza Streaming Engine. It includes example code for ABR streams. Providing an option to pick a rendition is really down to the player. Some players of ABR streams will perform dynamic switching of the stream on the fly - depending on available network resources and resolution. They may not offer the option to the player as such.

This Flowplayer page has more information.
