Thread: Change relative URL's in HLS

  1. #1

    Default Change relative URL's in HLS

    Wowza puts in relative URL's in the HLS playlist's that are generated to retrieve the variant playlists, key files, and media segments. Is there any way to prepend a fixed URL for all of those? We are going to serve these files thru a CDN and need a way to insert absolute URL's, and control the protocol (http or https). Thanks

    You can switch to absolute URLs with this Property setting:

    Thanks. That turns absolute on for variant playlists only, and I'm not sure where we can change what absolute URL is used. I know Wowza added features for Wowza acting as a CDN origin in 3.5, but I think the inability to control the prepended URL here should be added. We need to delivery the main playlist, variant playlist, and key files over HTTPS, and we need to delivery the TS chunk over HTTP. Therefore we need to specify absolute URL's, including the protocol, for all of them in the manifests.

    Is there a way to do this in the API? Intercept how the playlist is generated and inject it ourselves?

    No, I checked around to be sure, that is not supported at present.

    I know this is an old thread but I would like to have this ability. Does the current wowza support the ability to set absolute path hostname in the chunklist.m3u8 file.
