How the HTTP Live Streaming works: The Basics of HTTP Live Streaming

The research for this article started when some of my subscription users started complaining that they could only see a few minutes of one of my longer webinars before they needed to reset their browser. At first, I thought this was caused by bad programming on our part. But, further research made me realize that iOS devices only stream about 10 minutes of continuous video content when they are connected to a cellular data network, then they stop.
This article explains why. (If you want a more technical explanation, read this Apple Support Note.)
NOTE: If any of the following conditions are true, you can ignore this article:
  • You stream all your videos off YouTube, Vimeo, or other commercial streaming service
  • Your videos run less than 10 minutes
  • No one watches your videos on an iOS mobile device (apparently, Android devices don’t have this limitation).
Understanding Live Streaming isn’t easy, but it isn’t impossible, and this article provides a cookbook you can follow which makes a lot of it fairly simple.
There are two types of web video:
  • Progressive downloads
  • Streaming video
