Using JW 5.9 and adaptive provide, I have implemented/compiled code to parse h.264 meta data and deliver view the JW java script events.
I am now reviewing the future direction of the JW Player and I am wondering about the future of HLS. HLS clearly seems supported in JW 6 except I see numerous posts and source code repo comments indicating the following...
* adaptive provider has been removed from source code repo
* HLS is being built into JW 6 (not a separate provider)
* HLS support is a separate project from JW 6 (reference to Courtnay)
* HLS is only being kept for premium JW player (licensed)
These comments seem to be on occasion contradictory.
Can I get some clarification...
Will HLS be supported in JW - non commercial version and will the HLS based source code for Flash be available as open source?
I am interested in continuing to upgrade JW Player (even looking into JW 6 beta) but we require customizing HLS parsing implementation for in-stream meta data (both meta data in H.264 and handling ID3 timed meta data)
