How to make hls online video player

To make an HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) online video player, you will need to follow these general steps:

  • Encode your video content into multiple resolutions and bitrates using an HLS-compatible encoder such as Apple's mediafilesegmenter or ffmpeg.
  • Create an HLS manifest file, which is an index file that contains a list of the video segments and their corresponding bitrates and resolutions.
  • Choose an HLS-compatible video player, such as Video.js or JW Player, and customize the player's appearance, controls, and branding to match your website's design.
  • Add the player code to your website's HTML file and include the HLS manifest file as the video source.
