Playlist

Source

It is the smallest unit for playing video from OvenPlayer. It is generally a single content.

example
let player = OvenPlayer.create("player", {
type : "mp4",
file : "https://path.to/your_video",
framerate : 30,
label : "360P"
});

Sources

If you have multiple protocols or multiple resolutions for a single content, you can register them at once using sources.

OvenPlayer will play a video in the order of the protocol or resolution you entered in sources, and will automatically play the next source if playback fails.

let player = OvenPlayer.create("player", {sources : [
{
type : "mp4",
file : "https://path.to/your_video",
framerate : 30,
label : "360P"
},
{
type : "mpd",
file : "https://path.to/your_video.mpd",
framerate : 30,
label: "360P DASH"
},
{
type : "hls",
file : "https://path.to/your_video.m3u8",
framerate : 30,
label: "360P HLS"
},
{
type : "rtmp",
file : "rtmp://path.to/your_video",
framerate : 30,
label: "360P RTMP"
}
] });

Playlist

playlist has multiple sources mentioned above. You can explore between playlists, and it automatically plays the next content. Also, you can assign ads and captions for each playlist.
