Vanessa Pyne – And Now Presenting What No One Asked For: How to Live Stream a Laserdisc

It began with a new job, spare time, and a penchant for impractical archaic media formats. After joining the Daily.co engineering team earlier this year, I had been eager to find a reason to try out our RTMP streaming feature. But what is worthy of a live stream from my apartment? That was the question I was pondering when I tripped over a milk crate of laserdiscs in my living room. Of cours[…]

Kirill Pugin & Nitin Garg – Live Video Streaming as “tail -f”

Most live video delivery solutions today are built using DASH/HLS or similar delivery formats with “classic“ CDN infrastructure providing scalability and players with relatively complex logic that includes fetching manifest and segments from network, estimating bandwidth, making ABR decisions. In this talk we would like to present an alternative architecture for live video streaming which dr[…]

Christian Feldmann – The Hypothetical Reference Decoder. Or: Vbv-bitrate is Not Bitrate

Some of you might have already stumled on HRD parameters in h.264/AVC or h.265/HEVC. In the open source encoders x264 and x265 these can be enabled using the –vbv-bitrate and –vbv-bufsize options. Also the AV1 standard specifies a buffer model. While these buffer models were designed with fixed transmission lines and hardware limitations in mind, we see some use of them in modern applicati[…]

Roderick Hodgson – Editing Video Simply By Editing Text, in the Browser: a Meta Story

There is a technical barrier to editing video which often needs the know-how of complex Non-Linear Editor (NLE) applications. But that barrier has now been significantly reduced by taking advantage of granular metadata, advances in web technologies, and a cameo from A.I. By leveraging in and out timecode per word generated by automatic speech recognition, you can now edit video in the browse[…]

Nigel Harniman – Dynamic Content Insertion Into Live Streams Across the 3 Main Streaming Formats

And yes, that includes MSS & single Period DASH! As broadcasters and content providers widen the reach of supported devices and platforms, multiple streaming formats are required. Inserting dynamic content, often targeted ads, is relatively straightforward for HLS and multi-Period DASH and there are a number of providers who can offer this. Enabling the broadest reach requires solving th[…]

Jim Hall – CDN Logs: Not Just For Breakfast Anymore

Historically, CDN logs have been a necessary evil: something you have to gather in case something goes wrong and you need to trawl through and figure out why an end-user had a less than stellar experience. But as CDNs are starting to make this logging data available in near real-time, they become an almost invaluable tool for creating a feedback loop for actionable insights into your video d[…]

Boy Van Dijk – Don’t Let Latency Ruin Your Longtail: An Introduction to “dref MP4” Caching

Many setups in large scale on-demand video streaming nowadays rely on a just-in-time packager to deliver remotely stored MP4 content. Unfortunately, the latency to such a storage backend can be suboptimal and a just-in-time packager needs to make a relatively high number of requests to the source content to package it dynamically. This will impact the overall performance of the packager, as […]
