DuraCloud customers can now select HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) an option for streaming files. HLS is widely supported by browsers and mobile devices and allows for non-Flash video and audio players. HLS is supported by HTML5 video and audio tags. Both open and secure streaming options are available for HLS through DuraCloud.
Development work for this new feature was supported by an Andrew W. Mellon foundation grant awarded to UNC Libraries, titled Extending the Reach of Southern Audiovisual Sources: Implementation.
Detailed release and deployment notes can be found on the DuraCloud GitHub repository.
