Amazon Kinesis Video Streams enables developers to use its fully-managed HLS capability for synchronized audio video (AV) playback and also output HLS streams in MPEG-TS container format. Developers can now ingest both audio and video in a single multi-track Kinesis Video stream and use HLS APIs to deliver pre-segmented files and playlists in fragmented MP4 (fMP4) and MPEG-TS container formats for playback on compatible mobile and web players.
As an increasing number of camera-enabled devices now include a microphone, developers want to ingest both audio and video data in a Kinesis Video stream and build player applications for synchronized AV playback. Developers can now enable this capability by ingesting both video (H.264) and audio (AAC) in a single multi-track Kinesis Video stream. As the media is ingested, developers can then use KVS HLS APIs to playback the ingested media in both live and on-demand mode. Kinesis Video Streams now also allows developers to deliver media in both fMP4 and MPEG-TS as the HLS output container, increasing compatibility with earlier generation platforms such as iOS9.
