Use the Videolinq player to stream recorded files hosted on Videolinq, or by any other 3rd party streaming service provider.

The Videolinq media bin can store recorded files that will be used by the player to create VOD streams. Use any FTP client and upload MP4 files you prepared to pre-created sub-folders for easy tracking and reporting. The Videolinq player only supports the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol.

Point to a single media file like this (0000 is your account number):

https://media.videolinq.net/playback/_definst_/0000/file-name/playlist.m3u8

Point to multiple media files using adaptive bitrate (ABR):

https://media.videolinq.net/playback/_definst_/0000/amlst:file-name/playlist.m3u8?resolutions=240,360,480,720,1080

To enable ABR on video-on-demand (VOD files) encode multiple MP4 files at preset bitrates of 512KB, 768KB, 1500KB, 2500KB, 4000KB to support 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p resolutions, and upload the files to the same sub-folder, renaming them like this:

sub-folder/filename_240.mp4

sub-folder/filename_360.mp4

sub-folder/filename_480.mp4

sub-folder/filename_720.mp4

sub-folder/filename_1080.mp4

Add closed captioning to VOD files by creating VTT file for each bitrate file and uploading the VTT files to the same directory as the media files.
