Supported HLS features

Browser TVSDK supports a number of HLS features that you can implement to add functionality to your video applications.

TIP

In the feature matrix tables below, supported icon means that the feature is supported in the current release.

TIP

In the Safari column “Platform Limitation” means that the use case is not supported because that platform does not allow implementation of support for it. In the case of a insertion, use SSAI. If there are playback limitations important to you, force fallback to Flash on Safari until the platform supports the ad insertion use case.
