Live Streaming

Dynamic Cloud Packaging can stream live content to any standard HLS or MPEG-DASH player. It is able to do so by ingesting a live stream that was pushed by an encoder to our services via RTMP.

How Does It Work?

The entire process through which an audio/video feed is transmuxed and then streamed to clients around the world is illustrated below.

Transmuxing Workflow

Dynamic Cloud Packaging prepares an audio/video feed for playback through the following workflow:

  1. Encoder: An encoder pushes an encoded audio/video feed via RTMP to the closest publishing point.
  2. Dynamic Cloud Packaging: Dynamic Cloud Packaging transmuxes the video feed to HLS and/or MPEG-DASH.

Live Streaming Workflow

Dynamic Cloud Packaging streams a live event through the following workflow:


Step Description



A media player requests the playback of the live stream via HLS or MPEG-DASH.

This request identifies:

  • A streaming service (i.e., Dynamic Cloud Packaging).
  • A streaming technology (i.e., HLS or MPEG-DASH).
  • A live stream.


(HTTP Large)

This request is routed to the POPIdentifies a location on our network through which users can request and receive content. closest to the viewer.

A check will be performed to see whether the requested content has been previously cached.

  • Cached: If the requested dynamic stream has been previously cached, then it will be streamed directly from the edge of our network to the viewer.
  • Not Cached: The request will be forwarded to the publishing point where it was ingested and transmuxed into HLS and/or MPEG-DASH.


Dynamic Cloud Packaging

A Dynamic Cloud Packaging publishing point will deliver the requested stream via the POP closest to the viewer.
