Timed metadata in LL-HLS

Greetings!

I’m experimenting with LL-HLS and can’t figure out how to inject timed metadata. Would be grateful for any guidance.

Best regards!

We do not have the support just yet for timed data in the cmaf packetizer you would use for LL-HLS in Wowza.

Hi @Roger Jönsson glad to hear you’re experimenting with LL-HLS and just making sure you know that while Wowza supports this new protocol. you do need the permission from Apple to play a LL-HLS stream. Here are the details:

As far as timed metadata for LL-HLS, I need to check if I have any docs for you yet on that from Wowza. Let me confirm and I’ll be back to update you soon.

Hi @Rose_Power-Wowza_Com, It has been a year now since last update. Is there any progress on supporting timed metadata in LL-HLS?

Thank you,
