ROKU Streaming Channels Utilize Apple HLS Streaming

Posted by Derrick on November 3, 2013 under Video Streaming and Compression | Comments are off for this article

ROKU streaming channels utilize Apple HLS Streaming. The technology known as Apple HLS is one of the several options for utiliziing Adaptive Streaming. Apple HLS is proprietary but it’s one of the best options to implement Adaptive Streaming because it works with iOS devices, Android devices and ROKU Channels. ROKU Channels can be subscribed to and watched on a ROKU set-top-box. You can either choose to have a Live Streaming ROKU Channel or an On-demand streaming ROKU channel. Both options will require you to create several bit rates of Live Streams and On-demand video content, therefore you’ll need to keep that in mind.

If you’d like to have Freeman Compression create a ROKU Streaming Channel for you give us a call. Contact Freeman Compression Inc. at 407.477.5837 for more information or e-mail us at info@freemancompression.com.

Using Intensity Pro with Wirecast is a good choice.  Many individuals using Wirecast should consider also installing an Intensity Pro capture card in their live encoding workstation. These cards work really well with Wirecast and Wirecast Pro for Live Streaming.  Since many cameras now use HDMI, having the Intensity Pro is a good selection because it has two HDMI inputs.

The Intensity Pro capture card works with PC, Mac and Linux.  You can learn more about using the Intensity Pro card with Wirecast by attending one of our Wirecast Live Streaming Trainings.
