Providing secure HTTPS delivery of your HLS streams is essential if you are to reach your maximum audience.
The Chrome browser update requiring HTTPS is a big driver of this shift in the streaming industry, but we have been supporting HLS over HTTPS for over a year.
Providing secure HTTPS connections to our full CDN is included with all ScaleEngine video streaming services, and it is a standard part of our live streaming service.
With websites increasingly consumed as apps on Smart TVs, HTTPS delivery of streams should be a standard part of your video streaming package. With ScaleEngine as your high quality, trusted provider, it is.
The HLS authoring specification is referenced on our ios page.
