HLS and AES workflow on JWPlayer Platform
Hi. We're currently evaluating alternatives for a provider that integrates both HLS and AES encryption in its platform. We've seen that the Enterprise subscription supports HLS playback and AES *decryption*. But before we decide, we'd like to address the following questions:
1) Do you integrate the AES *encryption* process as part of the hosting platform? I mean, could we upload our MP4 files directly and process both encoding and encryption on JWPlayer Platform? Or do we need a separate hosting for previously encrypted files? If so, it seems we'd lose some of the functionality included, as thumbnail track generation, or even automatic encoding for different resolutions/formats, right? We've read that AES encryption would be a feature in your development plans (march 2016 or so), but were wondering if there's an implementation ready or estimated timeframe.
2) Do you support HLS automatically for videos uploaded to your own JWPlayer Platform on Enterprise accounts?
Again, we'd like to know if our workflow/pipeline would be as simple as configuring our desired settings/conversions and just upload MP4 files and have the required processing (segments, encryption and so on) already taken care of, or if we'd need a third-party service for HLS and/or AES, as this would be a significant factor in the decision-making process. Thanks for your attention.
