m3u8 custom headers/tags

Can we develop server-side module to add custom headers/tags to m3u8 playlist and change/remove existing headers/tags ?

This is not supported at present. What are you trying to accomplish?


No, there is not a way to do this at present. Maybe in the future, but I don’t know if or when.


We have iOS client that allows play HLS encrypted with PlayReady and also have library that allows us to encrypt “.ts” chunks , but in m3u8 playlist we need add custom tags/headers and change/remove some existing .

Do you plan support HLS in DRM AddOn ?


Checking in on this one. I’m using the latest Streaming Engine and need a way to customize M3U8 headers. As a quick example:


I want to update FORCED=NO to FORCED=YES. Is there support for this in 4.1.x?
