HLS Support

HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) is an HTTP-based communications protocol for media streams. HLS has been widely adopted for video and audio delivery across the industry around the world. No matter if embedded in a web page or consumed through a standalone video player, Silk Performer automatically detects HLS traffic during recording and simulates a video player consuming HLS data during playback.

Silk Performer provides the BDL functions HlsInit and HlsPlay to load test audio and video delivery systems in on-demand or live streaming scenarios.

Silk Performer provides comprehensive statistics and metrics for streams and reliably detects stoppages due to bandwidth constraints or server issues.
