HLS VOD Playlist

Record Multiple Variants and Create HLS Master Playlist for VOD

If you are using the transcoder to publish multiple variants of a stream, you can record all of the variants by modifying red5pro/conf/hlsconfig.xml, setting <property name="forceVODRecord" value="true"/>. You will also need to set up cloudstorage (per this document).

In order for the master playlist to be created, modify red5pro/conf/cloudstorage-plugin.properties, setting the streams directory property to streams.dir=/usr/local/red5pro/webapps/ (assuming your Red5 Pro server is installed in the /usr/local directory), and then modifying the other properties as outlined in the cloudstorage plugin document.
