HTTP Live Streaming (also known as HLS) is an HTTP-based adaptive bitrate streaming communications protocol developed by Apple Inc. and released in 2009. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_0

Support for the protocol is widespread in media players, web browsers, mobile devices, and streaming media servers. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_1

As of 2019, an annual video industry survey has consistently found it to be the most popular streaming format. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_2

HLS resembles MPEG-DASH in that it works by breaking the overall stream into a sequence of small HTTP-based file downloads, each downloading one short chunk of an overall potentially unbounded transport stream. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_3

A list of available streams, encoded at different bit rates, is sent to the client using an extended M3U playlist. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_4

Based on standard HTTP transactions, HTTP Live Streaming can traverse any firewall or proxy server that lets through standard HTTP traffic, unlike UDP-based protocols such as RTP. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_5

This also allows content to be offered from conventional HTTP servers and delivered over widely available HTTP-based content delivery networks. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_6

The standard also includes a standard encryption mechanism and secure-key distribution using HTTPS, which together provide a simple DRM system. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_7

Later versions of the protocol also provide for trick-mode fast-forward and rewind and for integration of subtitles. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_8

Apple has documented HTTP Live Streaming as an Internet Draft (Individual Submission), the first stage in the process of publishing it as a Request for Comments (RFC). HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_9

As of December 2015, the authors of that document have requested the RFC Independent Stream Editor (ISE) to publish the document as an informational (non-standard) RFC outside of the IETF consensus process. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_10

In August 2017, RFC8216 was published to describe version 7 of the protocol. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_11

Architecture HTTP Live Streaming_section_0

HTTP Live Streaming uses a conventional web server to distribute audiovisual content and requires specific software to fit into the proper format transmission in real time. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_12

The service architecture comprises: HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_13

HTTP Live Streaming_description_list_0

  • Server: Codify and encapsulate the input video flow in a proper format for the delivery. Then it is prepared for distribution by segmenting it into different files. In the process of intake, the video is encoded and segmented to generate video fragments and index file.HTTP Live Streaming_item_0_0
    • Encoder: codify video files in H.264 format and audio in AAC, MP3, AC-3 or EC-3. This is encapsulated by MPEG-2 Transport Stream or MPEG-4_Part_14 to carry it.HTTP Live Streaming_item_0_1
    • Segmenter: divides the stream into fragments of equal length. It also creates an index file that contains references of the fragmented files, saved as .m3u8.HTTP Live Streaming_item_0_2

HTTP Live Streaming_description_list_1

  • Distributor: Formed by a standard web server, accepts requests from clients and delivers all the resources (.m3u8 playlist file and .ts segment files) needed for streaming.HTTP Live Streaming_item_1_3
  • Client: Request and download all the files and resources, assembling them so that they can be presented to the user as a continuous flow video. The client software downloads first the index file through a URL and then the several media files available. The playback software assembles the sequence to allow continued display to the user.HTTP Live Streaming_item_1_4

Features HTTP Live Streaming_section_1

HTTP Live Streaming provides mechanisms for players to adapt to unreliable network conditions without causing user-visible playback stalling. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_14

For example, on an unreliable wireless network, HLS allows the player to use a lower quality video, thus reducing bandwidth usage. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_15

HLS videos can be made highly available by providing multiple servers for the same video, allowing the player to swap seamlessly if one of the servers fails. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_16

Adaptability HTTP Live Streaming_section_2

To enable a player to adapt to the bandwidth of the network, the original video is encoded in several distinct quality levels. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_17

The server serves an index, called a "master playlist", of these encodings, called "variant streams". HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_18

The player can then choose between the variant streams during playback, changing back and forth seamlessly as network conditions change. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_19

Using fragmented MP4 HTTP Live Streaming_section_3

On WWDC2016 Apple announced the inclusion of byte-range addressing for fragmented MP4 files, or fMP4, allowing content to be played in HLS without the need to multiplex it into MPEG-2 Transport Stream. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_20

The industry considered this as a step towards compatibility between HLS and MPEG-DASH. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_21

Low Latency HLS HTTP Live Streaming_section_4

Two unrelated HLS extensions with a "Low Latency" name and corresponding acronym exist: HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_22

HTTP Live Streaming_unordered_list_2

  • Apple Low Latency HLS (ALHLS) which was announced by Apple at WWDC2019HTTP Live Streaming_item_2_5
  • "Community LHLS" (LHLS) which predated Apple's publication and is allegedly simplerHTTP Live Streaming_item_2_6

The remainder of this section describes Apple's ALHLS. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_23

It reduces the glass-to-glass delay when streaming via HLS by reducing the time to start live stream playbacks and maintain that time during a live streaming event. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_24

It works by adding partial media segment files into the mix, much like MPEG-CMAF's fMP4. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_25

Unlike CMAF, ALHLS also supports partial MPEG-2 TS transport files. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_26

HTTP/2 is required to push the segments along with the playlist, reducing the overhead of establishing repeated HTTP/TCP connections. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_27

Other features include: HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_28

HTTP Live Streaming_unordered_list_3

  • Playlist Delta Updates: only sending what changed between playlist, which typically fit in single MTU making it more efficient to load the playlists which, with large DVR windows, can be quite large.HTTP Live Streaming_item_3_7
  • Blocking of playlist reload: when requesting live media playlists, wait until the first segment is also ready, and return both at same time (saving additional HTTP/TCP requests)HTTP Live Streaming_item_3_8
  • Rendition Reports: add metadata to other media renditions to make switching between ABR fasterHTTP Live Streaming_item_3_9
  • New tags added: EXT-X-SERVER-CONTROL / EXT-X-PART / EXT-X-SKIP / EXT-X-RENDITION-REPORTHTTP Live Streaming_item_3_10
  • URL QUERY_STRING ?_HLS callbacks addedHTTP Live Streaming_item_3_11

Apple also added new tools: "tsrecompressor" produces and encodes a continuous low latency stream of audio and video. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_29

The "mediastreamsegmenter" tool is now available in a low latency version. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_30

It is a HLS segmenter which takes in an UDP/MPEG-TS stream from tsrecompressor and generates a media playlist, including the new tags above. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_31

Support for low-latency HLS is available in tvOS 13 beta, but not iOS & iPadOS 13 beta. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_32

On April 30, 2020, Apple added the low latency specifications to the second edition of the main HLS specification. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_33

Dynamic ad insertion HTTP Live Streaming_section_5

Dynamic ad insertion is supported in the HLS using splice information based on SCTE-35 specification. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_34

The SCTE-35 splice message is inserted on the media playlist file using the EXT-X-DATERANGE tag. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_35

Each SCTE-35 splice_info_section() is represented by an EXT-X-DATERANGE tag with a SCTE35-CMD attribute. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_36

A SCTE-35 splice out/in pair signaled by the splice_insert() commands are represented by one or more EXT-X-DATERANGE tags carrying the same ID attribute. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_37

The SCTE-35 splice out command should have the SCTE35-OUT attribute and the splice in command should have the SCTE35-IN attribute. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_38

Between the two EXT-X-DATERANGE tags that contain the SCTE35-OUT and SCTE35-IN attributes respectively there may be a sequence of media segment URIs. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_39

These media segments normally represent ad programs which can be replaced by the local or customized ad. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_40

The ad replacement does not require the replacement of the media files, only the URIs in the playlist need to be changed to point different ad programs. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_41

The ad replacement can be done on the origin server or on the client’s media playing device. HTTP Live Streaming_sentence_42
