hlssink2

HTTP Live Streaming sink/server. Unlike the old hlssink which took a muxed MPEG-TS stream as input, this element takes elementary audio and video streams as input and handles the muxing internally. This allows hlssink2 to make better decisions as to when to start a new fragment and also works better with input streams where there isn't an encoder element upstream that can generate keyframes on demand as needed.

This element only writes fragments and a playlist file into a specified directory, it does not contain an actual HTTP server to serve these files. Just point an external webserver to the directory with the playlist and fragment files.

Example launch line

 gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc is-live=true ! x264enc ! h264parse ! hlssink2 max-files=5

Properties

location

“location” gchararray

Location of the file to write

Flags : Read / Write

Default value : segment%%05d.ts


max-files

“max-files” guint

Maximum number of files to keep on disk. Once the maximum is reached,old files start to be deleted to make room for new ones.

Flags : Read / Write

Default value : 10


playlist-length

“playlist-length” guint

Length of HLS playlist. To allow players to conform to section 6.3.3 of the HLS specification, this should be at least 3. If set to 0, the playlist will be infinite.

Default value : playlist.m3u8


playlist-root

“playlist-root” gchararray

Location of the playlist to write

Flags : Read / Write

Default value : NULL


send-keyframe-requests

“send-keyframe-requests” gboolean

Send keyframe requests to ensure correct fragmentation. If this is disabled then the input must have keyframes in regular intervals

Flags : Read / Write

Default value : true


target-duration

“target-duration” guint

The target duration in seconds of a segment/file. (0 - disabled, useful for management of segment duration by the streaming server)
