    Default Which players support Apple HLS streams in Flash and DVR Live Streaming?

    Which players supoprt:

    a) Apple HLS streams in Flash
    b) DVR Live Streaming

    I see that JW Player 6 Premium supports Apple HLS streams in Flash and that JW Player 6 also support DVR Live Streaming.

    Any alternatives to JW Player?

    We looked into this, you will need the Enterprise (ads) license for JW Player 6 for DVR playback. The Premium version supports HLS playback on the desktop and iOS devices, and it will playback a DVR stream (using ?DVR in playback url), but the DVR controls are not displayed, so only live view is available.

    JW Player 6 is the only option I am aware of that will do HLS to desktop browsers. But you can do DVR with smooth streams using a Silverlight player on the desktop.

    The Expression 4 Encoder has players you can use and modify.

    The SMF project is another source of players

    And Wowza ships with DVR Silverlight example that includes player source.

    You can test this plugin with StrobeMediaPlayer which is also based on osmf framework.
